Minnesota Twins @ Detroit Tigers

Scheduled Start Time: 4:08 PM ET

Comerica Park

(Sports Network) - Doug Fister hasn't lost a home start since Aug. 19 of last year. The right-hander toes the rubber Saturday afternoon for the Detroit Tigers against the Minnesota Twins when the teams resume a four-game series from Comerica Park.

Fister is 4-0 with a 3.00 ERA on the bump at home this season. His winning streak at Comerica Park goes back eight starts with a 6-0 ledger since the Aug. 19 defeat to Baltimore.

Most recently, Fister was touched for nine hits and five runs in 4 2/3 innings of a no-decision at Texas on Sunday. He's 3-6 with a 3.13 ERA in nine games against Minnesota.

Right-hander P.J. Walters was recalled from Triple-A Rochester to start today's game for the Twins in what will be his 2013 major league debut. Walters has fashioned a 4-2 record with a 3.31 ERA in nine starts thus far for Rochester. He went 2-5 with a 5.69 ERA in 12 starts last year for Minnesota. Walters is 1-1 with a 3.20 ERA in five games (4 starts) in his career when facing the Tigers.

Friday night, Anibal Sanchez was two outs away from pitching a no-hitter, but Joe Mauer broke up the bid with a single up the middle. Sanchez fanned 12 Minnesota batters while recording his sixth career shutout, as the Detroit Tigers blanked the Twins, 6-0, to send Minnesota to its 10th straight loss.

Sanchez (5-4), who threw 130 pitches, was trying to become the only active pitcher to throw a no-hitter with two different teams. He walked three batters in the one-hit performance.

The right-hander was trying to toss the eighth no-hitter in franchise history. Justin Verlander has thrown the last two, most recently May 7, 2011 in Toronto. It would have been the first no-hitter thrown by a Detroit player other than Verlander since April 7, 1984 when Jack Morris did it against the Chicago White Sox.

'He had a shot at it ... but that was just an unbelievable performance by Sanchez,' said Tigers manager Jim Leyland.

Don Kelly had a two-run homer while Miguel Cabrera and Omar Infante drove in two runs apiece for the Tigers, who are on a four-game winning streak.

Samuel Deduno (0-1) made his season debut, allowing six runs on nine hits and three walks over 5 1/3 innings for the Twins.

'Their guy (Sanchez) shut us down totally and had great stuff,' said Twins manager Ron Gardenhire. 'The ball was moving all over the place. Our guys said the ball was really diving, his breaking ball was really sharp. He had good stuff and congratulations to him.'

Detroit has won five of eight from the Twins this season.
