Recap: Detroit vs. LA Angels

Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - Doug Fister shut down the Angels a day after their season-best output, as the Tigers rolled to a 7-2 victory in the third meeting of a four-game series at Comerica Park.

Fister (4-6) surrendered a solo home run to Albert Pujols in the first inning, but was otherwise masterful in winning his third straight start. He allowed just one more hit, two walks and fanned 10 over eight innings.

Fister's dominant performance came after the Angels pounded out 18 hits and five homers in a 13-0 rout on Tuesday.

"He pitched terrific," Tigers manager Jim Leyland said of his starter. "He moved the ball in and out and changed his speeds."

Brennan Boesch and Prince Fielder each had two hits and drove in a pair for Detroit, which improved to 4-2 since the All-Star break.

Angels starter C.J. Wilson (9-6) was touched for a season-high seven runs on eight hits and five walks.

"Over the course of the season, you hope the good bounces go your way. Tonight they didn't," Wilson said.

Delmon Young countered Pujols' 17th home run of the season with a two-out, RBI single in the bottom of the first, and the Tigers tacked on four more off Wilson in their next turn at the plate.

Ryan Raburn hit a bases-loaded single to bring in a run, Miguel Cabrera's groundout plated another and Fielder laced a base hit to center that scored a pair.

Boesch made it 7-1 in the fifth when he sliced a line drive down the left- field line to knock in Cabrera and Jhonny Peralta.

The double was Detroit's last hit, but Fister retired the last 11 hitters he faced to keep it a six-run game.

Torii Hunter's RBI groundout in the ninth off Joaquin Benoit capped the scoring.

Dorm Report: Rooting for the lesser of two evils

I really do try my best not to hate anyone, seeing as how that word can be thrown around rather easily, which is why it was so tough watching the Florida State-Louisville game on Thursday night.
