DETROIT (AP) -- Doug Fister retired his first 17 batters and then settled for a four-hitter in the Detroit Tigers' 6-1 victory over the fading Cleveland Indians on Saturday night.
Fister's bid for a perfect game was broken up with two outs in the sixth inning when Ezequiel Carrera tripled over Austin Jackson's head in center field. Fister (6-7) finished with six strikeouts but lost his chance at his first career shutout when Carrera tripled again in the ninth and scored on a groundout.
Ubaldo Jimenez (8-11) allowed six runs and seven hits in 5 1-3 innings for Cleveland, which has lost eight straight.
Brennan Boesch and Jhonny Peralta each hit a double and a triple for the Tigers.
The game was delayed 37 minutes in the second inning by rain.
