Miguel Cabrera hit a three-run homer, Austin Jackson a three-run double and the Detroit Tigers wore out the Arizona Diamondbacks 11-5 in a slugfest at Chase Field on Wednesday.

Detroit roughed up Trevor Cahill (1-7), going up 7-0 after four innings behind Jackson's big hit and three RBIs by Alex Avila.

Arizona clawed its way back against Anibal Sanchez (7-4), scoring three runs off him in the fifth and two more over the next two innings.

Joba Chamberlain needed one pitch to escape a jam created by Sanchez in the seventh inning and Cabrera put the Tigers up 11-5 in the eighth, hitting his 15th homer off the foul pole in left.

Both teams had 13 hits.

Didi Gregorius homered and had two RBIs for the Diamondbacks.
