LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) -- Prince Fielder went 2 for 2 and Doug Fister combined with seven pitchers to throw a one-hitter, leading the Detroit Tigers to a 2-0 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Saturday.

Fister walked a batter in two innings, and the Tigers took a no-hitter into the eighth inning when Jordan Parraz singled off Chris Bootcheck. The Tigers scored in the third when Jerad Head homered to left field. They added a run in the eighth on a sacrifice fly. Mike Minor pitched two innings for the Braves, allowing one hit and striking out three. The teams will meet again Sunday in Lakeland.
