DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) — Brandon Inge hit a three-run homer and the Detroit Tigers beat the Toronto Blue Jays 8-2 on Monday.

Nate Robertson pitched 4 1-3 innings for the Tigers, yielding two runs and five hits. The left-hander struck out four and walked two.

Inge connected in the first against Brian Tallet, who is expected to be Toronto's fifth starter but had a rough time against Detroit. He allowed five runs and eight hits in five innings.

Ryan Raburn also homered for Detroit.

Randy Ruiz hit a two-out, two-run shot in the second inning for Toronto. It was his third homer of the spring.
