Another injured Yankee–Nunie (though it’s apparently not as bad as it first looked)–more mediocre pitching and a pair of blasts by Prince Fielder.
Watching Fielder hit a home run is All-American Funski. For a big guy his bat moves quickly but there is so much force in the whole thing, the swing and follow-through, the twist of his massive body, seeing him unload is both awesome and funny at the same time.
The Yanks had a brief lead on a homer by Kevin Youkilis but then Boone Logan relieved Ivan Nova, gave up the first of Fielder’s home runs and it was all downhill from there.
Final Score: Tigers 8, Yanks 3.
