DETROIT, April 30 (UPI) -- Justin Verlander fired seven innings of one-run ball and the Detroit Tigers backed him with three homers Tuesday in their 6-1 win over Minnesota.

Miguel Cabrera smacked a two-run homer in the first inning, Alex Avila added a solo shot in the second and Prince Fielder capped the scoring with a two-run clout in the fifth for the Tigers, who won a fifth straight.

Wilkin Ramirez went 2-for-3 with an RBI for Minnesota.
