Yankees 5, Tigers 2
The Tigers got a nice start from Kyle Lobstein (2 GS, 11 IP, 3.27 ERA, 3.57 FIP) who offered six innings of one run baseball, but Eovaldi danced into and out of problem, holding the Tigers to just a single run as well. The difference in this game were the bullpens, as the Yankees shut the Tigers down and the Tigers, by way of Krol, Gorzelanny, Alburquerque, and Hardy allowed four runs in three innings of work on dingers and walks and all sorts of bullpen nonsense. The Tigers had their chances but bounced into a few double plays along the way, but they really turned the heat up in the 9th, loading the bases and pushing across a run before Iglesias finally struck out, sending them to loss number three. They’ll give the ball to their ace, David Price (3 GS, 22.1 IP, 0.40 ERA, 2.48 FIP), on Wednesday evening.
The Moment: Tigers load them up in the 9th to make it interesting.
