In one of those Grapefruit League games where things can get out of hand, things got out of hand Saturday for the Tigers as they lost, 10-3, to the Blue Jays in Detroit's spring-training home opener at Joker Marchant Stadium.

Three pitchers who likely won't figure in the Tigers' immediate plans — Shawn Hill, Melvin Mercedes, and Ryan Robowski — were sacked for all 10 runs.

"Some pitchers didn't command the ball very well," said Tigers manager Jim Leyland, who was more focused on Saturday's crowd (8,025) and its energy. "They were just nervous. Wild."

Tigers regulars had a more comfortable time in a game that had its artistic moments.

Prince Fielder hit a mammoth two-run home run over the indoor batting facility, a blast that likely traveled 430 feet or more. Miguel Cabrera added another tape-measure blow when he reached the top of the berm in left-center field.

Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez pitched a scoreless two innings, while the day's big pitching story — right-handed closer candidate Bruce Rondon's debut — was eventful.
