Tigers Claw the Yankees
There was no Yankee offense outside of Lyle Overbay. Overbay had all three RBI in the game on a two-run home run and later on an RBI single. Besides Overbay the Yankees lineup couldn't string together a couple of base hits if their lives depended on it. This is nothing new for the Yankees, who slip to 58-57 which is not a playoff team. The Yankees fans who still believe are falling on deaf ears because there is absolutely no way that this is a postseason worthy team.
Tomorrow afternoon the Yankees still have a chance to win their first series in over a month as they send the struggling Pettitte to the mound against the always dangerous Justin Verlander. Pettitte is due for a quality start and with the Yankees getting embarrassed this afternoon, I expect a strong showing from this offense off Verlander, who they have hit well in the past.
