First Losing Streak of the Season

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

Yankee have lost 3 in a row. Time to panic? I wouldn't...Hughes pitches in game 2 in a couple of hours.

NYY 0 4 0
DET 2 5 1

WP: Porcello (3-3)
LP: Vazquez (1-4)
S: Valverde (10)

Player of the Game: Rick Porcello. The Jersey bred right-hander shut down the Yankees allowing only four hits and striking out 2. Fifteen of his outs were groundouts.

Play of the Game: The Tigers turning an around the horn double play in the seventh off the bat of Ramiro Pena. It was key for them to turn it as the Yankees were in position to get back into the game.

Turning Point: The sixth inning. Vazquez was not hit hard, but a couple of singles and ground balls getting through the infield gave the Tigers a 2-0 lead which is all they needed.


  • Didn't really catch this one, but the one thing everyone has to be happy to see is the pitching performance of Javier Vazquez. This Tigers lineup is no walk in the park, and he did a good job, giving up just two runs in seven innings while striking out seven. Unfortunately for Vazquez, the Yankees offense couldn't get anything going for him.

Game 2:

Hughes vs Bonderman 7:05 p.m. Comerica Park
