Tigers, A's DON'T play marathon game

Next time Coast Guard Lt. Luke Patterson runs a marathon during a baseball game, he should probably avoid Doug Fister.

Even with a 16-minute delay when the lights went out at the Oakland Coliseum, Fister's eight innings of one-run ball helped the Tigers and A's wrap up last night's game in a tidy two hours and 25 minutes.
