Sept. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Detroit Tigers pitcher Doug Fister set an American League record by striking out nine straight batters in a game.

Fister struck out nine Kansas City Royals beginning with two outs in the fourth and ending with two outs in the seventh, when catcher Salvador Perez grounded out.

The Tigers were leading the Royals 4-1 in the eighth inning. Fister, who is 10-9 with a 3.32 earned run average, has 10 strikeouts in the game.

Tom Seaver of the New York Mets struck out 10 on April 22, 1970, for the major-league record. Eight straight have been struck out by AL pitchers five times.
