Detroit Tigers Fall At The Hands Of The New York Yankees In Game 2

The Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees took on each other at Comerica Park in Detroit, Michigan for Game 2 of 4. Detroit took Game 1, but New York bounced back to win the next game, 5-2. 

The Yankees got things started as Mark Teixeira doubled to right field to score Brett Gardner

The Yankees took a 1-0 lead and then the game became a pitchers duel until the seventh inning when New York struck again. 

Chris Young hit a solo shot to left field and Stephen Drew followed with a home run of his own to right field. A wild pitch from Al Alburquerque allowed Jacoby Ellsbury to trot in and score. 

The Tigers finally got on the board with a sacrifice fly from Yoenis Cespedes to score J.D. Martinez. It was 4-1 after this run was scored. 

In the top of the ninth, Brian McCann was safe at first on an error made by third baseman Nick Castellanos. That allowed Brett Gardner to score, and the Yankees took a 5-1 lead. 

Chirs Martin came in to pitch the ninth inning for New York. He allowed two runners to reach scoring position and was quickly replaced by Andrew Miller. Miller walked Castellanos, and it was pinch-hitter Rajai Davis at the plate with the bases loaded to win it all. 

Davis drew a bases-loaded walk to make it a three-run deficit for Detroit. Jose Iglesias had the opportunity to win it with the bags loaded, but he came up short and the Yankees took the win, 5-2. 

Kyle Lobstein started the game for the Tigers and went 6.0 innings and gave up one earned run on three hits and four walks. The youngster threw 95 pitches and struck out three. However, he got the loss and has a 3.27 ERA on the season. 

Nathan Eovaldi was very dominant against the Tigers by working out of multiple jams. Eovaldi went 7.0 innings and gave up one earned run on eight hits and one walk with four strikeouts. He threw 94 pitches, got the win and has a 3.12 ERA on the season. 

The Tigers and Yankees will face off in Game 3 at Comerica Park. First pitch will be tossed at 7:08 PM EST. David Price (1-0, 0.40 ERA) gets the start for Detroit and will be opposed by Adam Warren (0-1, 4.82 ERA) from New York.
