The New York Yankees have been streaking and they need to stay hot to stay in the AL East race. The surging Yankees saw their five game winning streak come to an end Saturday as nether the work on the mound or at the plate was strong enough. Yanks ace Masahiro Tanaka was hit hard with five runs allowed on six hits including a pair of long balls through 6.1 innings to get the loss. The Bronx Bombers totaled six hits and walked three times with Rob Refsnyder driving in Chase Headley with the lone run. Michael Pineda is slated to oppose the Tigers for the second time on Sunday afternoon. Pineda defeated the Angels 6-3 last time out with all three runs allowed on four hits and four BB in seven frames.
The over is 6-2 in Detroit’s last 8 Sunday games and the Tigers are 7-16 in their last 23 Sunday games while the over is 5-2-1 in Fulmer’s last 8 starts on grass. The over is 7-3-1 in Pineda’s last 11 home starts. Detroit are 2-8 in the last 10 meetings and are 19-40 in the last 59 meetings in New York. Fulmer can’t continue to throw shutouts but hopefully he is good enough Sunday…
