Then, Miguel Cabrera got plunked.

MLB: Spring Training-Houston Astros at Detroit Tigers Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports

After getting shutout in their first Grapefruit League game of the year on Friday, the Detroit Tigers didn’t waste much time getting on the scoreboard on Saturday. In the second inning of their game against the Houston Astros, Andrew Romine, Ian Kinsler, and Victor Martinez hit back-to-back-to-back home runs off Astros pitcher Edison Frias.

Frias was then ejected after hitting Miguel Cabrera on his very next pitch.

Outfielder Jason Krizan added another home run later in the game and the Tigers won 11-4. Justin Verlander allowed a hit and a walk in two scoreless innings, and Blaine Hardy was awarded the win after a scoreless inning of his own.
