BOSTON -- Chris Davis hit his sixth homer and Adam Jones drove in two runs, including a tiebreaking double, to lead the Baltimore Orioles past the Boston Red Sox 3-2 on Thursday night.

Davis and Jones extended their torrid starts for the Orioles, who took two of three in Boston. The pair has combined for 30 of Baltimore's 85 hits, and Jones is batting .462 this season (18 for 39).

Dustin Pedroia and Mike Napoli had consecutive RBI singles for the Red Sox, who dropped a series for the first time after taking two of three on the road from both the New York Yankees and Toronto.

Baltimore improved to 1-3 in one-run games after going 29-9 last season.

With a game-time temperature of 45 degrees, Fenway Park was only about two-thirds full a night after a record sellout streak ended. The paid attendance was 27,704, the smallest crowd at the ballpark since April 16, 2003.

The Orioles broke a 2-all tie on Jones' RBI double in the seventh inning off Koji Uehara. Clayton Mortensen (0-1) took the loss.

Brian Matusz (1-0) struck out the only two batters he faced and Jim Johnson pitched the ninth in a light rain for his fourth save.

TIGERS 11, BLUE JAYS 1

DETROIT -- Miguel Cabrera tripled, scored twice and even stole a base, and Detroit knocked Josh Johnson out of the game with a five-run second inning against Toronto.

Doug Fister (2-0) allowed a run and eight hits in eight innings for the win. Johnson (0-1) gave up six runs and seven hits in 1 1-3 innings -- the shortest start of his career.

Prince Fielder had four RBIs and Torii Hunter added three for the Tigers.

The temperature at game time was 35 degrees, the coldest for a Detroit home game since 1996, according to STATS.

Blue Jays starters are 1-4 with a 7.59 ERA. Toronto, a chic pick to win the AL East after a splashy offseason, has lost three straight series to start the year for the first time since 1978.
