Yankees at Detroit-Yanks look for series win
The New York Yankees take on the Detroit Tigers tonight in the last of 3 from Comerica Park. The two teams split the first two and tonight Joba Chamberlain will take on Rick Porcello. The game is at 7:05PM on the YES network and WCBS 880 radio in NY. Here are some notes via Peter Abraham and Yankees.com.
The 10 runs scored in the 7th inning on Tuesday were the most the team has scored in one inning since they scored 10 in the 4th inning against Baltimore on Sept 29, 2007.
Robinson Cano's single on Tuesday extended his hitting streak to 15 games which matches a career high. He last did this on June 1-17, 2006. He is hitting 364 during the stretch.
Hideki Matsui's triple was the 11th of his career and 1st since Sept 22, 2007 in Toronto. He is hitting 406 over the past 8 games. Derek Jeter has a 8 game hitting streak.
Yesterday Jose Molina became the first player to log a sac fly and a grand slam in the same inning since Oakland's Sal Bando vs California on May 7, 1975 according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
