DETROIT — Prince Fielder homered for the first time in three weeks, hitting a two-run shot in the first inning as the AL Central-leading Tigers took the opener of a five-game series with third-place Kansas City. Andy Dirks added two doubles and two singles, and Anibal Sanchez allowed a run and seven hits in 7 1/3 innings for Detroit. The Royals have lost three in a row after a 17-3 stretch.
