When We Last Met

The Tigers bats were held in check for most of the game. Kyle Lobstein was shaky early but settled down nicely, but the bullpen couldn’t throw strikes and a late really came up short in a 5-2 loss the Yankees on Tuesday.

Pitching Matchup

David Price (1-0, 0.40) has started strong in his contract year but has just one win to show over his first three starts. The nature of being the ace though is that you face the best opposing pitcher, which is what happened to Price against Jeff Samardzija of the White Sox before the Tigers won on a ninth inning walk-off.

Price has experienced his ups and downs against the Yankees from his days in Tampa. He earned a win in New York in his Tigers’ debut last August but got torched by them two weeks later by allowing eight runs on 12 hits.

Price will not be facing the Yankees ace in this game, instead they send a pitcher who they hope one day could be an ace. Adam Warren (0-1, 4.82) will get his third start of the season on Wednesday after allowing four runs, including two homers, in four innings Friday in Tampa.

Warren faced the Tigers three times out of the bullpen last year and was effective, picking up a win with a 2.70 ERA.
