A frustrating fourth inning for Detroit.
Omar Infante led off with an infield single and Miguel Cabrera got ahead in the count before smoking a line drive that was caught by third baseman Pablo Sandoval.
Cabrera pounded his chest once and looked up toward the sky.
Prince Fielder flied out to the left-field warning track and Infante was picked off when he tried to steal second.
The umpires have been terrific tonight.
Somehow, Doug Fister appears to be OK.
Gregor Blanco hit a line drive right off the side of Fister’s head in the second inning. The ball caromed high in the air and landed in center field for a single.
Fister, however, never went down and never appeared to be hurt.
Very, very fortunate.
Game is still scoreless after three innings.
Early mistake by the Tigers, who squandered a chance at a big inning with some overly aggressive baserunning.
Fielder was hit by a pitch to open the second and Delmon Young grounded a double inside third base. Chugging around the bases, the hefty Fielder was waved home by third base coach Gene Lamont and cut down on a close play at the plate.
