Here are the takeaways…
– On August 31 against these Tigers, Clark Schmidt only went 4.2 innings and gave up three runs from six hits and three walks in his last game, but Wednesday night was a different story.
After giving up a two-hit run in the first inning, the 27-year-old would take out the next 16 batters. However, the young right-hander would have problems in the seventh round, so that the Tigers would have solid contact on error fields. Schmidt would give up three hits and a run ahead of the manager Aaron Boone lightened his starter. Wandy Peralta would allow an inherited barrel to score on a sac-fly but would limit damage.
Schmidt’s night ended after 6.1 innings (99 pitches), giving up three runs in five hits, no walks and six strikeouts.
– Matt Manning He started the game for Detroit but didn’t last long. After four batters Gian Carlo Stanton hit a 119 mph liner with the starter’s foot, resulting in an out. Manning finished the inning but was substituted after the first frame.
The Yankees would take advantage of Detroit’s bullpen in the second inning if DJ LeMahieu hit a single with a broken bat and tied the game 1-1. Jason Dominguez roused the crowd at Yankee Stadium with his first home run in the Bronx, a line drive to right centerfield that hit 383 feet and 110 mph on the first try.
Oswald Peraza, who scored on LeMahieu’s goal in the second half, drove in Gleyber Torres With a two-out double, the Americans led 3:1. In the fourth run, Gleyber rode his own run with a one-off single that scored Aaron Richter.
-Peralta would start in game eight and get into trouble. After I got the first one out Javier Baez hit a pinch-hit single before running two of the next three batters before Boone pulled his left. Gregg Weissert came in and got Matt Vierling swing four pitches to get out of a tight spot.
Clay Holmes came on in the ninth game to try and save that game, it was his seventh appearance in a ten-game span. He scored a 1-2-3 inning and secured the win.
-Dominguez had his first multi-hit game of his career on Wednesday night, including his first strike from the right. He finished his first five games 3-4, including his third home run. He’s only the second Yankee to do so Shelley Duncan in 2007.
Peraza stayed 3-on-4 with a double, an RBI, and a run. He’s now at seven on his last 15 at-bats with three doubles and three RBIs.
The Yankees wrap up their three-game streak with the Tigers Thursday night. The first pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
The Yankees will broadcast Carlos Rodon (2-4, 5.70 ERA) to the hill and he is fought by LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (10-, 3.11ERA).
