DETROIT, Michigan —

The Tigers brought their A game after a lack luster showing yesterday by defeating the Toronto Blue Jays 11-1 today at Comerica Park. Detroit tied a season high by hammering out 16 hits, including 3 each from Austin Jackson and Jhonny Peralta. Prince Fielder finished 2 for 2 with 4 RBI and a double, while Torii Hunter was 2 for 4 with 3 RBI to lead the way for the Tigers. Every starter with the exception of Andy Dirks (0 for 4) had a hit in today’s ball game.

Detroit got to Toronto starter Josh Johnson very early on and didn’t let up. Johnson left after just 1.1 innings, the shortest outing of his MLB career. He allowed 7 hits and 6 runs before exiting.

Tigers starter Doug Fister threw a tremendous 8 innings, the longest outing of a Detroit starter this season. He allowed 8 hits and 1 run while striking out 5 Jays.

The Tigers will pack their bags and head out for a lengthy trip out west that has them stopping in Oakland, Seattle, and finishing in Anaheim.

Detroit has now won 2 of the seasons opening 3 series! GO TIGERS!
