Miguel Cabrera tripled, scored twice and even stole a base, and the Detroit Tigers knocked Josh Johnson out of the game with a five-run second inning en route to an 11-1 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday.

Doug Fister (2-0) allowed a run and eight hits in eight innings for Detroit. Johnson (0-1) allowed six runs and seven hits in 1 1-3 innings - the shortest start of his career.

Prince Fielder had four RBIs and Torii Hunter added three for the Tigers.

The temperature at game time was 35 degrees - the coldest for a Detroit home game since 1996, according to STATS.

The Blue Jays have not lived up to expectations early because of poor pitching. Their starters are now 1-4 with a 7.59 ERA.
