Tigers 7, Yankees 5
A really good game for seven innings--the last seven innings. Really: pitching, hitting, fielding all entertain, Detroit starter is chased just in time to allow the Yankees back in against a thin bullpen, and a rally leaves the Yankees on top, 4-1. Not counting the first two frames. Garcia, bless his soul, may be done. 12 wins last year was the perfect non-Lee antidote. Pat on the back, gold watch. Pettitte? Anybody? Over to you, CC. 11-9, and don't look now, but 1) Boston just won its sixth straight to pull within a game of New York, and 2) Aceves has looked increasingly better with every appearance this week, post-Bombers.
