Considering this was a two-run game, the Yankees never seemed to put up much of a fight. Russell Martin’s RBI double and Mark Teixeira’s eighth home run of the year were their only extra-base hits and accounted for their only runs in a 4-2 loss to the Tigers. CC Sabathia battled but didn’t have his best stuff, and he could limit the damage only so much. The Yankees brought the tying run to the plate in the ninth, but Martin grounded into a game-ending double play.
