warm up the wood

New York and Detroit conspired to use 14 pitchers while going 16 combined walks on Tuesday in a game that lasted 3:59.

While the Yankees would like the result to be repeated, they’re particularly hoping a potential path to victory is much different after ace starter Gerrit Cole worked just 1 2/3 innings after struggling with footing issues. control.

Severino could be exactly what the doctor ordered. Not only is he 3-1 with a 2.64 ERA in five career starts against the Tigers, he rediscovered the zip on his fastball after being severely limited by elbow and ankle injuries. shoulder over the past three seasons.

Detroit has scored just nine points in the last four games and enters the game with an average of .196, last in the American League and third lowest in the majors.

Detroit’s early returns to Rodriguez haven’t been promising since signing a five-year free agent contract in the offseason.

The southpaw is 0-1 with a 5.87 ERA in two starts, with seven strikeouts in 7 2/3 innings.

If there’s any good news for the Tigers, it’s this: Rodriguez brings a lot of familiarity against the Yankees after spending six seasons with the rival Boston Red Sox. In 23 career appearances against New York, including 21 starts, he is 8-6 with a 3.72 ERA.

Meanwhile, Yankees batters rank ninth in the major leagues with 105 strikeouts in 11 games.


Eduardo Rodriguez on 5.5 Ks


Yankees designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton went 1 for 5 with two strikeouts on Tuesday after going 0 for 4 and two strikeouts Sunday in Baltimore.

That dropped his batting average to .256 and expect the slump to continue for at least another night.

Stanton comes into play Wednesday batting 0 for 9 with five strikeouts against left-handed pitchers this season and hasn’t done well against Rodriguez in his career, going 2 for 16 with nine Ks.
