The New York Yankees took two of three games from the Seattle Mariners in the Bronx over the weekend; and now are just three games deep into a 20-game stretch as they are now in Detroit to face the Tigers for a four game set.
Now this year in Detroit it has been a different story.
Coming into 2012 as the heavy division favorites, the Tigers stumbled through the first-half of the season. But thanks to improved play, and a weak AL Central they now trail the Chicago White Sox by just a 1.5-games.
The Tigers are coming in hot as they are on a four-game win streak; and are fresh off a walk-off win yesterday, courtesy of a Miguel Cabrera homer in the 10th inning. Oh and the Tigers haven’t lost in Comerica in their last eight games either so home field lends some comfort.
Here are the pitching match-ups for the four-game set:
|Game #||Date||Vs.||Time||Probable Pitchers (NYY vs. DET)|
|108||Monday, Aug 6||@DET||7:05 PM||Nova vs. Veralnder|
|109||Tuesday, Aug 7||@DET||7:05 PM||Hughes vs. Porcello|
|110||Wednesday, Aug 8||@DET||7:05 PM||Sabathia vs. Sanchez|
|111||Thursday, Aug 9||@DET||1:05 PM||Kuroda vs. Fister|
NYY vs. DET
Call me cynical but I think a better word is concerned as the Yankees are coming into this series stumbling a bit as they haven’t been at their sharpest over the last two weeks.(…)
