WXYZ (AP) — Niko Goodrum, Miguel Cabrera, C.J. Cron and Jeimer Candelario all homered in the first inning and the Detroit Tigers drilled the Pittsburgh Pirates 11-5.

Detroit sent four of Derek Holland's first 11 pitches over the fence at PNC Park to propel the Tigers to another big offensive outburst against reeling Pittsburgh.

Detroit beat the Pirates 17-13 in 11 innings Friday night.

Nine of the Tigers' 16 hits Saturday went for extra bases.

Their four homers in the first marked the first time they'd gone deep four times in the same inning since they did it on June 1, 2013, against Baltimore.
