DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) — Detroit slugger Prince Fielder was on the move Tuesday, stealing a base and then getting thrown out at the plate in the Tigers’ 13-8 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fielder grounded into a forceout in the third inning. One out later, the burly slugger stole second for his first spring training swipe since 2008.

Jhonny Peralta later singled and Fielder tried to score, but was easily nailed by left fielder Eric Thames.

Thames homered off Tigers starter Max Scherzer, who was charged with nine runs and 11 hits in 4 1-3 innings.

Miguel Cabrera hit a two-run homer in the Detroit first. Danny Worth homered off Kyle Drabek in the Tigers seventh.

Ryan Schimpf hit a grand slam and Kevin Ahrens followed with a homer in Toronto’s seven-run fifth.
