DETROIT (AP) — Miguel Cabrera hit a three-run homer that capped a six-run second inning, sending Max Scherzer and the Detroit Tigers past the Minnesota Twins 9-3 Saturday.

Cabrera connected for his fifth homer, tagging Kyle Gibson (3-3).

Scherzer (5-1) wasn't sharp, giving up three runs on five hits and four walks in six innings. He struck out six — his team-record streak of fanning at least seven in seven starts to begin a season ended.

On the day the Tigers honored former manager Jim Leyland, one of his favorite players made an immediate impact. Don Kelly, a utilityman who owes his major league career to Leyland's patience and trust, reached over the left-field fence in the first inning to steal a homer from Kurt Suzuki.
