Hot dogs, buns, spider legs, Tribe losses: all things that comes in eights.

Doug Fister went the distance and carried a perfect game into the sixth inning as the Tigers struck for more than enough off Ubaldo Jimenez to support their cause as they won the second game of the series 6-1. Fister allowed one run in the ninth inning but permitted just four hits while walking none and striking out six. Ezequiel Carrera had a pair of late triples to account for half the team’s hits and scored the lone run. Lefty Chris Seddon will be making his Tribe debut facing Max Scherzer tomorrow afternoon in the series finale.
