The Tigers lost another tough one this afternoon as they fell to the Yankees for the third straight game. Joba Chamberlain was sharp and he outdueled Edwin Jackson in a 2-1 game. All three runs were scored with solo home runs. Clete Thomas belted one in the fourth, Alex Rodriguez then tied the game in the bottom half of the inning and then Mark Teixeira struck again with the game winner in the sixth.
Miguel Cabrera finished the game two for four. Jackson took the hard luck loss and he fell to 7-5. He gave up two runs on five hits and five walks with four strikeouts in seven innings. Oddly none of those walks came back to haunt him.
