Yankees Lose Third Straight Game In Detroit
Tigers beat sloppy Yankees 6-3
DETROIT (AP) – Brennan Boesch homered and drove in three runs,
and the Detroit Tigers took advantage of some sloppy fielding by
the New York Yankees in a 6-3 victory Thursday.
Derek Jeter didn't play for the Yankees, given the day off after
leaving the previous night's game with a right hip problem. His
replacement, Eduardo Nunez, made two errors, including a high throw
in the seventh that gave the Tigers two runs.
Rick Porcello (2-2) allowed two runs on eight hits for the
Tigers. He walked two and struck out three.
A.J. Burnett (4-2) held Detroit hitless until the sixth inning
but made an error of his own that led to a Detroit run in the
first. He allowed five runs – two earned – on three hits, striking
out five with one walk.
