The Yankees got shut out by the Tigers, 4-0, in Detroit on Friday afternoon.
- Luis Severino surrendered three earned runs on 10 hits over five innings of work. He struck out five and did not walk a batter.
- Miguel Cabrera hit a solo run home run off of Luis Cessa in the seventh inning.
- The Yankees only managed three hits, both singles. Jacoby Ellsbury, Mark Teixeira and Brett Gardner picked up the only hits. Jordan Zimmermann tossed seven scorless for Detroit.
- The Yankees drew four walks.
Chris Carelli: The Yankees offense was as cold as the weather at Comerica Park today after scoring 24 runs in their previous two games. That's not to take away anything from Tigers' starter Zimmermann, who was very good keeping the Yanks off the base paths.
Severino had a decent start, but could not convert an out in the sixth inning. Severino's line (5 IP, 3 ER, 10 H, 0 BB, 5 K) looks a bit worse than he pitched, as he was victimized by a fielding gaffe from Ellsbury in Detroit's two-run fourth inning. The running theme of the season thus far has been the inability of Yankees starters to complete six innings and this time around the offense was not there to pick up the pieces.
"We got in late. We played three days in a row. It's early in the season," Joe Girardi said about resting some of his older starters.
"It's not ideally what you want to do, but it was kind of a product of the rainout," the manager said.
The Yankees and Tigers square off again on Saturday at 1 p.m.
