Eight-run third inning sends Yankees to 8-4 victory over Tigers

Jacoby+Ellsbury+New+York+Yankees+v+Detroit+q5VlrqVbYjvl

The Yankees had by far their best inning of the season where they scored eight runs in the third inning against David Price and the Detroit Tigers. Those eight runs were just enough to give the Yankees a 8-4 victory at Comerica Park in Detroit, Michigan

The Yankees scored all their runs in the third on a Derek Jeter double, a Martin Teixeira double, a Carlos Beltran single, a Brian McCann single, a Brett Gardner single, a Francisco Cervelli single, a Jacoby Ellsbury SAC Fly and finally a Jeter sacrifice fly.

Shane Greene had another great outing, going seven innings while giving up two runs on five hits and striking out eight. Adam Warren gave up a run in an inning of work and Dellin Betances gave up a run in an inning of work.

What’s Next?

— The Yankees play a matinee game where they’ll try to take the series against the Tigers. Hiroki Kuroda will pitch for the Yankees. First pitch is at 1:10 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.

One Response to Eight-run third inning sends Yankees to 8-4 victory over Tigers

  1. Robert Rufa says:

    NY proved that you can have a blowout inning with mostly singles and just a couple of doubles. If they could do that all year they wouldn't need home run hitters. Sure a home run is dramatic and even awesome, but I've always admired batters who could deliberately hit the ball hard enough on the ground to make it through a hole. Teixiera's value would increase if he could learn how to do that in the clutch instead of posting Ks.
