The Yankees offense went silent for a while, but Nick Swisher’s ninth-inning single broke a tie and sent the Yankees to a 5-3 win against the Tigers. The Yankees had an early three-run lead, but the Tigers slowly chipped away while the Yankees squandered scoring opportunities in the middle and late innings. Alex Avila’s second home run of the night tied the game in the seventh, and it stayed that way until Swisher’s RBI single and a run-scoring passed ball in the ninth. Bartolo Colon is still unbeaten as Phil Hughes’ replacement in the rotation. He pitched seven innings, striking out seven, walking none and allowing the three Tigers runs.
