All right, let’s have a poll: if any of you thought Shane Greene was going to pitch a 1-0 shutout against the Detroit Tigers, raise your hand. I’m going to assume no one can raise their hand because not even I saw it coming. Shane Greene pitched a gem, giving the Yankees a series win against Detroit at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.
Greene went eight innings, giving up no runs on five hits, walking three and striking out five. Greene was relieved for David Robertson in the ninth after giving up a lead-off single where Robertson got Miguel Cabrera to ground into a double play and Don Kelly to pop out to Stephen Drew.
— The Yankees are slated to face the Indians for three games…and although I would like to tell you who’s starting for the Yankees, I can’t…because the Yankees haven’t announced the starter for Friday. I can tell you first pitch is at 7:05 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.
