Fister: No headache, no dizziness, and he's thinking about Game 6

By Danny Knobler | Baseball Insider

DETROIT -- Amazingly, Doug Fister seems to be fine.

"Let's put it this way," said Kevin Rand, the Tigers' athletic trainer. "His focus right now is on pitching."

Fister stayed in Game 2 of the World Series after he was hit in the head by a Gregor Blanco line drive, but the Tigers were concerned enough that they had him checked out again both Friday and Saturday.

Fister passed both tests without any signs of trouble.

"He never had a headache, never had any dizziness," Rand said. "Nothing.

"All he had was an abrasion on the scalp."

And if the Tigers get this World Series back to San Francisco for a Game 6 next Wednesday, Fister will get another start.
