There’s been a lot for the Tigers to like the last two days in Toronto.

High on Jim Leyland’s list late Wednesday night was Bruce Rondon.

The hard-throwing rookie reliever has had mixed results in limited major league action this season, but he had a pivotal performance in relief of Max Scherzer in a 6-2 victory over the Blue Jays.

“I think it might’ve done wonders for Bruce Rondon to come in and get two huge outs,” manager Jim Leyland said. “Those were two huge outs.

“I mean, you’re talking about (Jose) Reyes and (Jose) Bautista.”

Scherzer left after a one-out single in the seventh.

In trotted Rondon, who got Reyes to pop out to shortstop and then Bautista to ground into a force-out. The two stars already had three hits between them at that point.

“He was a bulldog out there today,” catcher Alex Avila said. “That was awesome.”

Cabrera to take break

The back still is bothering Miguel Cabrera.

So for the first time this season, he is going to get a day off — whether he likes it or not. Cabrera will be out of the lineup for today’s series finale.

“We’ve been on turf six straight days,” Leyland said. “Guys aren’t used to that.”

One who is, or was, is Torii Hunter. He spent years on the Metrodome turf, so he knows that can take its toll on the body.

“It will aggravate some backs and hamstrings,” he said.

The Tigers will be really short today, actually. Cabrera will be off and Omar Infante won’t play after being taken out on a hard slide by Colby Rasmus on Wednesday.
