JUPITER, Fla. (AP) – Miguel Cabrera’s RBI double and Jhonny Peralta’s homer highlighted a three-run first inning that helped send the Detroit Tigers past the Miami Marlins 6-3 on Monday.

Cabrera had two hits and scored twice.

Tigers starter Rick Porcello allowed three runs and four hits in six innings. He struck out three and gave up a solo home run to Rob Brantly.

Marlins starter Wade LeBlanc gave up four runs and seven hits in five innings. He walked one, struck out four and threw 86 pitches.

The Marlins pulled within 3-2 in the second on Justin Ruggiano’s RBI single and Adeiny Hechavarria’s triple.

Singles by Cabrera, Matt Tuiasosopo and Alex Avila in the third gave Detroit a 4-2 lead.
