Fister takes shot off wrist, still in there pitching

With the bases loaded in the bottom of the second inning, two things happened:

Robinson Cano was called out at first when he should have been called safe, and

Doug Fister took a line drive off his pitching wrist.

But not in that order.

You've already seen Canó, who could have been ejected for his emotional ejaculation.

Here's what happened to Fister:

Fister insisted on coming back out for the bottom of the third, while at the same time lefty Drew Smyly was getting warmed up in the bullpen. And things didn't look good early on, as Fister gave up a leadoff single to Mark Teixeira. But he retired the next two Yankees with ease, including (of course) a 6-4-3 double play for Alex Rodriguez.

In the top of the fourth, Andy Pettitte made quick work of the Tigers. And so we're still scoreless in Game 1.
