The Tigers had a chance to take the lead in the division with a win yesterday but they could not beat the visiting Yankees. They scored 8 runs on 13 hits but could not get the win due to a poor pitching performance. This afternoon the Tigers will turn to Doug Fister who has won five of his last six starts. Fister is pitching to 3.53 ERA 99 innings of work.
The Yankees look like they might have blown the lead on Wednesday but they bounced back to earn the win. They were led by an offense who blasted 18 hits and scored 12 runs. This afternoon they will start Hiroki Kuroda who has won his last five decisions. He has been excellent all season and is allowed just 133 hits 143 innings of work.
Detroit is 5-0 in their last five games as a favorite, 21-9 in their last 30 games overall, and 8-2 in Fister’s last 10 starts as a favorite. New York is 4-7 in their last 11 games overall, 1-4 in their last five games as an underdog, and 6-2 in Kuroda’s last eight starts. New York is 4-7 in their last 11 games in Detroit.
