(AP) — Doug Fister rebounded from a miserable start with seven shutout innings as the Detroit Tigers beat the Boston Red Sox 3-0 Monday in a matchup of teams with the AL’s best records.

The Tigers won despite missing Miguel Cabrera for the third straight game. He has been sidelined by a strained abdomen, though general manager Dave Dombrowski said the star has been more hampered by a groin problem.

Prince Fielder and Andy Dirks each drove in a run for the AL Central-leading Tigers, who won for the fourth time in five games.

The AL East-leading Red Sox lost for just the second time in nine games.
