Fister stays in game after line drive off his head

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Detroit Tigers starter Doug Fister stayed in the game despite getting hit in the head by a hard line drive off the bat of San Francisco's Gregor Blanco.

Blanco's drive in the second inning of Game 2 of the World Series on Thursday night hit Fister on the side of the head and ricocheted all the way into center field for a single. Manager Jim Leyland, pitching coach Jeff Jones and a trainer went to the mound to check on Fister but he appeared unfazed and remained in the game.

Fister then walked Brandon Crawford to load the bases with two outs. But he escaped the jam by getting fellow pitcher Madison Bumgarner to pop out to second base.
