The New York Yankees lose a tough one in Detroit

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Detroit Tigers on Thursday afternoon.  The game took place at Comerica Park in Detroit, Michigan and the final score was 3-2.  Hiroki Kuroda started and pitched well and the offense didn't do that much against a rookie pitcher making his major league debut.  They had a lot of hard hit balls and near misses but they still didn't produce as much as they would of liked. 

Kuroda pitched seven innings giving up four hits and two runs.  He walked one and struck out four.  Dellin Betances pitched an inning walking one and striking out two and Shawn Kelley pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up two hits and a run.  He walked one and struck out two. 

Kyle Lobstein pitched six innings giving up four hits and two runs with only one of them being earned.  He walked one and struck out none.  Blaine Hardy pitched 1 1/3 perfect innings with a strikeout, Joba Chamberlain pitched 1 1/3 innings giving up a walk and striking out one and Phil Coke won his second game of the season pitching 1/3 of an inning and giving up a hit and striking out one. 

Jacoby Ellsbury had a hit and an RBI, Martin Prado had a hit and Mark Teixeira drew two walks.  Carlos Beltran had two hits, Brian McCann had an RBI and Zelous Wheeler had a hit.  Beltran hit a double and the Yankees were 1-4 with runners in scoring position and left four men on base. 

Rajai Davis had two hits and an RBI, Ian Kinsler drew a walk and Victor Martinez had a hit.  J.D. Martinez drew a walk, Nick Castellanos had a hit and Don Kelly had a hit and drew a walk.  Alex Avila had a hit and two RBI, V. Martinez hit a double and  the Tigers were 2-8 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base.  Kinsler had a stolen base and Castellanos committed an error. 

In the second Avila hit a sacrifice fly giving the Tigers a 1-0 lead.  The Yankees tied the game in the third on an Ellsbury RBI single.  McCann hit an RBI groundout in the fourth to give the Yankees a 2-1 lead.  Davis hit an RBI single in the fifth to tie the game at two.  In the ninth Avila hit a walk-off RBI single and the Tigers won the game 3-2.  The Yankees lost two out of three in the series and will now head to Toronto for a three game series beginning on Friday night.
