TORONTO (AP) – Adam Lind homered and drove in six runs, leading Roy Halladay and the Toronto Blue Jays to a season-opening 12-5 win over the Detroit Tigers on Monday night.

Umpires waved both teams off the field for nine minutes in the bottom of the eighth inning after two balls were thrown from the stands in the direction of Tigers left fielder Josh Anderson. Groundskeepers cleared paper airplanes and empty beer cups from the warning track as the public address announcer read a message warning fans the game could be forfeited.

Lind had four hits and set a team record for RBIs in an opener. Making his team-record seventh consecutive opening day start, Halladay pitched seven innings.
