The New York Yankees win the rubber game over the Detroit Tigers

The New York Yankees defeated the Detroit Tigers on Thursday afternoon.  The game took place at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York and the final score was 1-0.  Shane Greene started and pitched great and Stephen Drew knocked in the only run of the game. 

Greene pitched 8+ innings giving up no runs and five hits.  He walked three and struck out five.  Greene picked up his third win of the season and David Robertson picked up his 31st save of the season.  Robertson pitched an inning giving up a walk. 

Rick Porcello was the hard luck loser pitching seven innings and giving up nine hits and a run with five strikeouts.  Porcello lost his sixth game of the season.  Phil Coke pitched an inning giving up a walk and striking out two. 

Brett Gardner, Martin Prado and Jacoby Ellsbury each had a hit.  Carlos Beltran had a hit, Chase Headley had a hit and drew a walk and Drew had a hit and an RBI.  Ichiro Suzuki had two hits, Brendan Ryan had a hit and Drew hit a double.  The Yankees were 2-7 with runners in scoring position and left eight men on base. 

Ezequiel Carrera had a hit, Ian Kinsler had two hits and Victor Martinez had a hit and drew a walk.  J.D. Martinez drew a walk, Don Kelly had a hit and Nick Castellanos drew a walk.  Alex Avila drew a walk and the Tigers were 0-4 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base. 

The only run of the game was scored in the fourth inning on a Drew RBI double.  It could of been two runs but the ball bounced in the stands for a ground rule double and only allowed the one run to score which was enough for Greene.  The Yankees took three of four in the series and will now begin a three game series with the Cleveland Indians at home on Friday night.
