A.J. Burnett carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning, then everything went wrong for the Yankees. Two hits in the sixth cost them the lead, a hit and a two-run error put the Tigers in front in the seventh, and tests eventually revealed a slight fracture in Eric Chavez’s left foot. The 6-3 loss was the Yankees third in a row, the first time they’ve lost three straight this season. Filling in for Derek Jeter, Eduardo Nunez had two hits but also made two errors at shortstop.
