Facing three straight Cy Young Award winners is no easy task. Well, for the Yankees it’s one down and two to go. The Yanks managed to beat Max Scherzer and the Tigers 2-1 in the first game of a big four game set.
Brandon McCarthy had his struggles and had to pull a few rabbits out of the hat. With the bases loaded in the second, he struck out the side.
Good luck trying to find a better catch this year. Anyway, it made it 1-0. After a lineout, Brian McCann singled in a run to make it 2-0.
The Yanks tried to add to it. Martin Prado in the third singled and stole second. Two batters later, Gardner singled but thought Prado was being sent home. Gardner was caught between first and second to end the inning.
In the fifth, Eugenio Suarez reached on a throwing error by Prado. He then stole second, but had to leave the game with a knee injury. Ian Kinsler then drove home pinch runner Andrew Romine to make it 2-1.
