Detroit Tigers players will look to rebound on Wednesday following a series opening loss to the New York Yankees.
Following a win against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday, Detroit dropped the team’s first game against the American League East franchise.
There wasn’t many positives in Detroit’s 13-4 loss to the Yankees.
The game saw Matthew Boyd get tagged for seven hits, seven runs, three walks and a home run in just 2.1 frames of work. He only struck out two as his ERA on the season climbed to 6.24.
Saupold surrendered four hits, two runs and two walks in his outing, while VerHagen gave up three hits, two runs and a home run.

In encouraging news, Joe Jimenez threw a scoreless frame, registering a strikeout.
Of his 19 pitches, 10 went for strikes. He lowered his ERA on the campaign to 10.64.
Elsewhere, Nicholas Castellanos registered a pair of home runs on the day. The homer that left the yard came in the seventh off New York starter Masahiro Tanaka. Later on, the third baseman registered an inside-the-park home run off reliever Chasen Shreve.
Castellanos’ second home run occurred after Yankees’ center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury misplayed a ball in center field that ended up rolling to the warning track.
