Fister pitches 8 strong innings for Tigers' win

MINNEAPOLIS -- Miguel Cabrera became the first player in the major leagues to reach 100 RBIs this season with a run-scoring single, and Doug Fister pitched eight strong innings for the Detroit Tigers in an 8-4 win over the Minnesota Twins.

Fister (7-7) did not allow an earned run and struck out seven to win for the third time in four starts. The Tigers overcame a bad defensive inning to end a three-game slide.

Pettitte: Setback could end season

NEW YORK -- New York Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte says recent X-rays on his broken lower left leg look better than they did last month, but he's still not sure when he might be cleared to throw off a mound.

He was in the clubhouse before Tuesday night's game against Texas and said he realizes that if he has another setback, his season is "probably over." Pettitte needs time to rebuild arm strength before October if he plans to be included in a potential postseason rotation.
