Live Game Updates: Tigers at Yankees - 6/10

7:19 p.m., Mid 1st: CC works a 1-2-3 top of the first. It took him 20 pitches, but he does fan two to start the night.

7:37 p.m., End 1st: Yankees jump on top with three in their first plate appearance. After McCann draws a bases-loaded walk, Didi hits a two-run double the other way, giving the Yankees a quick 3-0 lead against Mike Pelfrey.

7:53 p.m., Mid 2nd: Tigers waste a couple of singles in the second. Still, they have made CC throw 45 pitches already.

8:08 p.m., Mid 3rd: CC strands another man in scoring position after a lead-off single. Yankees still lead 3-0.

8:16 p.m., End 3rd: With the help of a throwing error by Detroit catcher James McCann, the Yankees add another run in the third. Beltran gets the RBI with a single to center, and the Yanks are starting to run away with this one.

8:29 p.m., Mid 4th: For the second straight start, CC has been an expert at escaping jams. He leaves two on base again in the fourth, despite a hefty pitch count of 78.

8:52 p.m., Mid 5th: Tigers put men on the corners in the fifth, but they fail to score after Miguel Cabrera grounds into an inning-ending double play. Halfway through the game, the Yankees still lead 4-0.

9:06 p.m., Mid 6th: CC retires the Tigers in order in the sixth. With him at 98 pitches, I'd imagine the Yankees will send him back out for a batter-by-batter situation in the seventh.

9:21 p.m., Mid 7th: CC continues his gem of an outing with a clean seventh. This is probably the end of his night, and if it is, let it be known that his ERA on the season has fallen to a very impressive 2.28. Definitely better than anyone expected in spring training.

9:35 p.m., End 7th: Pelfrey's done after 6 2/3 innings. Blaine Hardy comes on and gets the final out of the seventh, as the Tigers prepare to face Dellin Betances in the top of the eighth.

9:42 p.m., Mid 8th: Betances seems to be on the road back to his unhittable days. He strikes out two in a perfect eighth, extending his streak of consecutive retired hitters to nine.

9:50 p.m., End 8th: Looks like Anthony Swarzak will work the ninth inning for the Yankees. The middle of the Tigers' order is due up.

10:00 p.m., Mid 9th: That's your ballgame. Swarzak puts up a zero in the ninth and the Yankees beat the Tigers 4-0.
