After tests ruled out any circulatory or vascular issues with Phil Hughes, he will resume throwing in two week and possibly be back on the mound in about 6-8 weeks. Since he has reported not having symptoms when he is not throwing I am worried that he may not be back on the mound. It’s something that we just have to wait and see about.
Coming into this game Detroit had a seven-game losing streak. Nice of the Yankees to break that up for them. CC kept them to 4 runs despite not having his best stuff, but the Yankees didn’t get enough runs this game. No Mo since it was not a save situation, but we did get to see that clown Valverde.
Tonight the pitchers are Max Scherzer for Detroit and Freddy Garcia for the Yankees. Freddy has been pitching quite well. Let’s hope the Yankees can show him some love (and run support).
~~Tigers 4, Yankees 2~~
Detroit scored early with two runs, then two again in the fifth. Yankees only had 1 run at this point and Cano and Posada made some stupid base running mistakes. Girardi was mad, but like always, he said, “I spoke to him, that’s all I’m going to say.” He never says any more, I like that about him, whatever he says to them when he’s angry should stay that way, between them.
Mark Teixeira hit a home run in the 8th inning that was 405 feet. That brought the Yankees within two. They scored two runs in the ninth the day before so there was a chance they could catch up and win, but they didn’t.
