DETROIT (AP) — Miguel Cabrera hit one of three homers for the Detroit Tigers in their 10-3 win over the Miami Marlins on Wednesday.

Cabrera hit his 18th homer of the season in the fourth inning, tying Billy Williams at No. 48 on baseball’s career list with 426.

Steven Moya and Jarrod Saltalamacchia cleared the fence in consecutive at-bats in the fifth, giving Detroit an 8-2 lead.

Marlins reliever Dustin McGowan gave up all three homers, matching a career high.

The Tigers built a cushion right away with a four-run first, getting two runs on Victor Martinez’s single off Tom Koehler.

Daniel Norris (1-0) struck out a career-high eight and gave up two runs on eight hits and a walk over five innings.

Koehler (6-7) allowed five runs and eight hits in three innings.

Norris started for the second time this season, replacing Matt Boyd in the rotation after he was sent to Triple-A Toledo earlier this month. The Marlins put two on in the first before Norris struck out Marcell Ozuna and Giancarlo Stanton to end the threat.

Ichiro Suzuki had two hits for Miami, increasing his major league total to 2,987.

TRAINER’S ROOM
