DETROIT -

Doug Fister pitched six shutout innings in his return from the disabled list, Miguel Cabrera homered and also scored when Colorado misplayed his comebacker, and the Detroit Tigers defeated the Rockies 4-1 Saturday.

Fister (1-3) had been out since aggravating a ribcage strain on May 28. He missed a month after sustaining the original injury in his first start of the season.

Fister allowed three hits and struck out six.

Cabrera hit his 14th homer in the first. He got to circle the bases in the fifth, too, thanks to a pair of misplays after he hit a grounder to the mound.
