Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. Phil Hughes didn’t pitch well. Neither did Joba Chamberlain. The Yankee hitters didn’t score much. Should I go on?

The Tigers put up 9 runs on 17 hits. About the only one who got relief for the Yanks is Alex Rodriguez who had the day off. [2] Had he played, fans would have certainly had a fat target on which to direct their frustration.

Final Score: Tigers 9, Yanks 3. [3]

And moving on…
