1:05 PM EST. In a day game after a night game, the Tigers almost always rest some of their vets and since they are out of it, chances are great they’ll rest one, two or more here. The Yanks are in a pennant race so Joe Girardi will treat this as another very important game. It’ll be Jamie Garcia versus Michael Fulmer here but the pitching matchup here is not our focus. Our focus here is the smoking hot Yanks’ playing the ice-cold Tigers. Also note that the Tigers rancid bullpen is beyond taxed while the Yankees outstanding ‘pen is foaming at the mouth for some work.
The Yankees have won seven of their past nine games and have scored 23 runs in the first two games of this series while the Tigers have scored six times. Detroit has one victory over its last nine games with the opposition scoring 68 times over those nine games. That’s about 7½ runs against per game. When one bets the Tigers, the last thing you want to hear is that there is “activity in the bullpen” because each pitcher is worse than the last. We’re not going to over-analyze this one. The Yanks are heating up when it counts most while the Tigers season is over and they’re playing like it. In an evenly priced game, we’ll take out chances with a New York team that is seeing beach balls at the plate and that have thrived at this park.
