Tigers lineup vs. Indians, Game 43: Fister vs. McAllister

The Detroit Tigers dropped the first game of a three-game set across the lake, falling 5-3 to the Indians Tuesday night. The Tigers will send Doug Fister to the mound for his fourth start since returning from the disabled list. Last year, Fister was 3-0 with a 1.44 ERA (4 ER, 25 IP, 29K, 19 H) vs. the Indians after joining the Tigers at the trade deadline. (His one start vs. the Tribe that ended in a Tigers loss, you may recall, was the one that ended with a walk-off hit-by-pitch in the wee hours of the morning, long after Fister had left the game when rain delayed it after two innings).

For those of you who missed the transaction from Tuesday night to bring Berry to the squad, click here.
Only three Tigers (Don Kelly, Austin Jackson and Delmon Young) have hits off Indians starter Zach McAllister, but the whole squad has a sum total of 16 combined at-bats against the 6-foot-6, 240-pound right-hander. McAllister was originally a third-round pick of the New York Yankees in 2006, but was sent to Cleveland as the player to be named later in the 2010 Austin Kearns trade.
