DETROIT — Colt Keith and Akil Baddoo homered in a five-run first inning and Riley Greene emptied the bases in a four-run second inning as the Detroit Tigers beat the Chicago White Sox 11-2 on Sunday.

The Tigers scored more runs in two at-bats on Matt Vierling’s triple and Keith’s two-run homer than in any of their last six games, and they were just warming up.

Baddoo’s two-run homer capped a five-run first inning and Greene followed it up with a three-run shot in the second to put Detroit up 9-0.

The Tigers started the second with three straight singles, including Keith’s run-scoring hit. Rookie Jonathan Cannon (1-2) allowed eight runs — five earned — as well as seven hits on 42 pitches in just over one inning.

Cannon was beaten by a team that had five runs in six games and that taught the prospect a lesson.

For the White Sox, Dominican Eloy Jiménez was 1-for-4 with one run scored. Puerto Rican Martín Maldonado 3-0.

For the Tigers, Cuban Andy Ibáñez 2-0. Dominican Wenceel Pérez was 3-for-4 with one run scored and one RBI. Colombian Gio Urshela 4-0 with an RBI.
