Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Detroit Tigers 8/30

The New York Yankees and the Detroit Tigers will begin a four-game set that stretches into the weekend tonight in the Bronx. In the opener of the series the Yankees will send JA Happ to the mound to face off with Francisco Liriano for the Tigers. Detroit is sending a lefty out that has struggled with the home run ball lately out to Yankee Stadium to face off with the Yankees… yeah… let’s definitely get to it here in the Bronx.

Happ has won each of his first five starts for the New York Yankees and will look for a sixth straight win tonight in the Bronx. Along the way Happ has posted a 2.37 ERA including a solid start against the Baltimore Orioles last time out where he gave up two runs in six innings of work with nine strikeouts.

Liriano will head into the start tonight on a couple days of extra rest tonight inside Yankee Stadium. Liriano may benefit from the rest after a horrible August that saw the lefty go 0-4 with a 6.88 ERA in four starts, including giving up five home runs in 17 innings worth of work.

The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium and can be seen on the YES Network. You can also follow along with the game on MLB TV, with the MLB At-Bat app and by tuning into the Yankees radio broadcast on WFAN with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman.

Enjoy the game, tomorrow is the trade deadline, and go Yankees!!
