DETROIT — Miguel Cabrera drove in one of four runs in the fifth inning on a 4-for-4 day and the Detroit Tigers beat the New York Yankees 8-4 today.

Max Scherzer (1-0) gave up four runs in five-plus innings to pick up the win in a shaky start, his first of the season.

Phil Hughes (0-1) allowed four runs — three earned — on eight hits in four-plus innings on a day he was originally scheduled to make a rehabilitation start in the minors. Darin Downs and Joaquin Benoit combined to pitch three scoreless innings to end the game for the Tigers.

Detroit led 5-1 after five innings. New York pulled within a run in the sixth, then let Detroit go ahead 7-4 in the home half.

The Tigers will play for a series sweep Sunday in a matchup of aces, Detroit's Justin Verlander and New York's CC Sabathia.
