The Tigers bounced back from a devastating ninth inning last night in the Bronx that saw them surrender a four-run lead.
Delmon Young was the hero of the night, getting three hits and driving in three runs, including the game-winner in the 12th inning.
If the Tigers can steal another game in New York, they’ll be taking a giant step towards not having to return to Yankee Stadium.
Another factor that favors the Tigers is that Mr. Yankee himself, Derek Jeter, is out for the rest of the season after breaking his ankle in the 12th inning last night.
Anibal Sanchez gets the call on the mound for the Tigers, and he’ll squaring off against Hiroki Kuroda, who is on just three day’s rest.
First pitch from Yankee Stadium is scheduled for 4:07 on TBS.
