Prince Fielder powers Tigers past Rays

DETROIT -- Prince Fielder homered and drove in four runs, and the Detroit Tigers handed Tampa Bay's Matt Moore his first loss of the year with a 10-1 rout Tuesday night.

Fielder also hit a two-run single that capped a four-run second inning for the Tigers. Moore (8-1) got only six outs while allowing six runs, seven hits and six walks. He was pitching on three days' rest after his previous start in Cleveland was limited to one inning because of rain.

Anibal Sanchez (6-5) allowed a run and four hits in seven innings. He struck out nine with one walk.

Omar Infante homered and had three RBIs for Detroit, which won for the second time in seven games. It was Tampa Bay's second loss in nine.
