Tigers Fall to Yanks – Tuesday Sports Wrap

Click on the blue links for additional details.

Michael Fulmer struggled, as the Detroit Tigers fell to the New York Yankees 7-3 last night. Fulmer opened the game with three scoreless innings, but was charged with all seven New York runs before leaving in the seventh. Trailing by five in the ninth, the Tigers added one more run, but left the bases loaded when Aroldis Chapman struck out James McCann to end the game.

The Tigers face the Yankees in New York again tonight. Anibal Sanchez will pitch against C.C. Sabathia. Pregame coverage begins at 6:40 on 99.3 The Lift.

Detroit shortstop José Iglesias left last night’s game after spraining his wrist while striking out in the sixth inning. X-rays showed no significant damage, and he’s considered day-to-day.

There were no last-minute deals for the Tigers, as the Major League trade deadline passed yesterday afternoon. Meanwhile, with Justin Wilson now pitching for the Cubs, Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said yesterday that Shane Greene will take over as the team’s closer.

The Milwaukee Brewers had yesterday off, and open a home set against the St. Louis Cardinals tonight. Jimmy Nelson will start against Carlos Martinez.

The Brewers did pull off a last-minute trade yesterday, reacquiring reliever Jeremy Jeffress from the Texas Rangers. Milwaukee traded Jeffress to Texas at last summer’s deadline, along with catcher Jonathan Lucroy. He struggled with the Rangers this season. The Brewers sent Double-A reliever Tayler Scott to Texas in exchange.
