The New York Yankees always are somewhere near the top. This season is no exception, as they are slowly moving their way up the standings in the American League East. This afternoon they take on the Detroit Tigers in the second game of a three-game series. Friday night the Yankees made a comeback to defeat the Tigers in the first game of the series 7-6.

The Yankees are 11-8 on the season and will give the ball to Freddy Garcia this afternoon. Garcia is 0-1 with an ERA of 9.75. He has had a disastrous start to his season. He has given up four or more runs in each of his three starts this season. Last Saturday against Boston, he allowed five runs giving up seven hits in just an inning and two-thirds. However, he has won 18 in his career against Detroit. Over his career, he is 18-8 with an ERA of 3.88 against the Tigers.

Detroit is in disarray. The Tigers have lost seven of their last eight games to fall to 10-10 on the season. Delmon Young one of their star players was arrested early Friday morning for making anti-Semitic remarks. He did not play in Friday’s game and released a prepared statement apologizing for what he said.

The Tigers will look to turn things around today with Drew Smyly on the mound. He is 0-0 on the season by has an ERA of just 1.13. In his first three starts in the major leagues, he has been very steady. The young 22-year old southpaw has not given up more than a single run in any of his three starts. He has 15 K’s in just 16 innings of work.

One big bright spot for the Yankees has been veteran Derek Jeter. He has a hit in 17 of the 19 games thus far this season, even though he was hitless Friday night, ending a 15-game hitting streak. The line has the Yankees as the favorite -125 with the Tigers are +115. The total is at 10. The Yankees will win again today, as the Tigers continue in their funk. The total will end UNDER.
