Detroit Tigers have laid an egg against the Yankees
The Tigers went into Yankee Stadium as one of the hottest teams in baseball as they had won seven of their previous nine games.
Unfortunately, the Tigers’ offense has been horrendous in their first two games against the Yankees as they have been shut out twice on a total of just four hits.
Today’s matchup features Rony Garcia (Tigers) against Jordan Montgomery (Yankees).
That game will begin at 11:35 a.m. ET.
Nation, do you think the Detroit Tigers can salvage a game against the Yankees or will Sunday be more of the same as the first two games of the series?
