Aaron Judge had a hit, an RBI and drew a walk, Josh Donaldson had an RBI and Anthony Rizzo had a hit and an RBI.  Giancarlo Stanton had a hit, Gleyber Torres drew a walk and Kyle Higashioka drew a walk.  Aaron Hicks had a hit, Stanton hit a double and Judge and Rizzo each hit a homerun.  The Yankees were 0-3 with runners in scoring position and left four men on base. 

Miguel Cabrera had a hit, Derek Hill drew a walk and the Tigers left one man on base. 

In the bottom of the first Judge hit a solo homerun to give the Yankees a 1-0 lead.  In the bottom of the sixth Rizzo hit a solo homerun extending the lead to 2-0 and in the bottom of the eighth Donaldson hit a sac fly to make it 3-0 which would be the final score.
