Tigers hold on to beat Yankees

Opposing pitcher Anibal Sanchez, meanwhile, wasn't overpowering, but worked through the Bombers' lineup efficiently enough, giving up two runs on six hits over 6.2 innings. "When the game's on the line, it's nearly like you borderline blackout and you just compete", he said. "And that's what I fuel off of".

Frazier looked on with aw as he realized he wouldn't be rounding the bases with a home run. He set a career high with 14 strikeouts against Tampa Bay on Friday night, allowing just two hits and one run over eight innings.

He quickly ended the eighth inning, getting Matt Holliday to hit into a 6-6-3 double play - a ground ball to shortstop Dixon Machado, who stepped on second and threw to first.

The Yankees can pull this off by sliding Hicks back into a fourth outfielder role and keeping Ellsbury on the roster mostly as a pinch-running specialist for the remainder of the year.

"I kind of laughed in my head when I threw the ball away", said Greene, who made three miscues in his third career start July 21, 2014, against the Texas Rangers. The Yankees game Monday night drew the largest rating on YES since Derek Jeter's final home game, September 25, 2014. That brought up Frazier, a right-handed hitter. "I'm sure there are some things that are going to come up that I'm going to have to adjust to".

Greene's only previous saves were in an 11-inning, opening-day win over Miami a year ago, and a rain-shortened game against the White Sox on July 21 last season. "I guess I got real lucky". Their farm system has been replenished, with numerous best crop yielding a handsome harvest at the major league level. Just catch the ball like I've always done, but I think it's gone pretty well so far. "He was kind of my flex reliever". Detroit general manager Al Avila says the main focus of the trades was to get the best talent available, and that while the team will continue to evaluate the new minor league players, Castellanos is the third baseman.

New York's Luis Severino (8-4) won his third consecutive start, allowing one run and four hits in five innings. In Sabathia's last start, he only lasted 4.1 innings.

Headley got three hits as NY won for the ninth time in 11 games.

"For some reason, 25-year-old CC felt like taking the mound today, so he got that", Sabathia said.

Judge broke out of a slump with his 34th home run, regaining sole possession of the major league lead, and Chase Headley sparked NY at the plate Monday night in its 7-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers. Yankees games on YES averaged 336,000 viewers last month, the most in July since 2012. Detroit SS Jose Iglesias did not play due to a sprained right wrist.

Yankees: 2B Starlin Castro (strained right hamstring) still hasn't started running. He'll carry a 5.83 ERA into Baltimore this weekend.

Fulmer, who allowed two hits in six scoreless innings during his Yankee Stadium debut on June 11, 2016, gave up seven runs (six earned) and seven hits in six-plus innings for his third straight defeat.
