Tigers beat Yankees 4-3 in 12 innings


The Yankees were hoping to find a way to get to David Price and the Detroit Tigers, but a tired Yankees bullpen gave up the lead in the 12th, prompting the Yankees to fall 4-3 at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.

The Yankees were able to get on the board in the second inning on a Brian McCann home run. They scored again in the third inning on an RBI double by Jacoby Ellsbury and in the 5th on a home run by Martin Prado.

Hiroki Kuroda gave up three runs on six hits while striking out five in seven innings. Dellin Betances pitched a scoreless 1.1 innings, Shawn Kelley retired two batters, David Huff retired two batters, Esmil Rogers pitched a scoreless inning, Rich Hill doesn’t record a single out in his Yankees debut and Matt Daley gave up the winning run for the Tigers in his 1.1 innings of work.

What’s Next?

Chris Capuano is faced with the daunting task of opposing Justin Verlander as the Yankees hope to take the third game of the four game set. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.

    I feel bad for Kuroda. It seems that everytime he pitches the Yankee offense goes dormant. Kuroda is a warrior on the mound.

    Kuroda could not hold the lead when he had opportunity to collect a W. Tough Luck!

    I am not sure if Girardi will give a starting gig to Rogers this weekend. Whitley could do the spotty start. Bryan Mitchell is slated to pitch tomorrow night for Scranton so keep eyes on him for a hint.

    Joe left Kuroda in too long, how many other people watching the game could just feel the lead slipping away from Kuroda? He was gassed and it showed.
