DETROIT, Aug. 4 (UPI) -- Doug Fister hurled a four-hit complete game and Detroit backed him with 10 hits Saturday in the Tigers' 6-1 victory over Cleveland.

Fister (6-7) dominated the Indians, tossing 73 of his 107 pitches for strikes en route to his fifth win in six starts.

The right-hander issued only one run, didn't allow a walk and struck out six while compiling the fourth complete game of his career.

Jhonny Peralta and Omar Infante each drove in a pair of runs for the Tigers, who clinched their three-game series.

Second-place Detroit came into the contest trailing the American League Central-leading Chicago White Sox by 2 1/2 games.

Indians starter Ubaldo Jimenez (8-11) was tagged for six runs on seven hits in a 5 1/3-inning stint.

Jason Kipnes got the RBI for the reeling Tribe, who dropped their eighth straight.
