The Tigers have a scheduled off day on Monday and then will start a three-game home series against the Baltimore Orioles.

The Detroit Tigers are coming off being swept by the Cleveland Indians and have just one win in five home games this season. Detroit is averaging 3.58 runs per game while allowing 4.17. Aroldis Chapman struck out the side in a flawless ninth for his second save.

Dellin Betances had an very bad eighth, surrendering three runs on four five hits in only two-thirds of an inning - including a leadoff homer to Jaimee Candelario. Hicks is the first Yankee with a multi-homer game - including an inside-the-parker - since Hank Bauer on May 30, 1956 versus the Senators, according to baseball researcher Katie Sharp.

The latter, of course, had the most memorable night. Hicks drilled a shot to deep right-center, which took a funky carom off the angled right-centerfield wall and shot way out toward straightaway center.

Hicks made it 6-1 in the sixth with a drive well over the rightfield fence off Fiers. Currently, 69% of the wagers are going on the Yankees on the road in this game.

NYY: Jordan Montgomery (0-0, 9.1 IP, 4.82 ERA, 1.93 WHIP, 6 BB, 8 K).

With the tying run at the plate and the Bombers ahead 6-3, David Robertson struck out Leonys Martin to end the seventh, stranding runners at the corners. James McCann and Jeimer Candelario homered for Detroit.

The Yankees went to work against Fiers in the second.

The Tigers initially canceled just Game 1; at about 1 p.m., they made the sensible decision to scratch Game 2, as well.

Four innings later, Hicks hit another homer that cleared the wall by plenty, but it was his first tour of the bases that was the highlight of this night.

2011. Aaron Hicks' inside-the-park homer in the second inning was the first by a Yankee since August 21, 2011, when Curtis Granderson did so in Minnesota.

Brett Gardner brought home another run in the fifth with a bloop double, and Aaron Judge drove in Gardner with a single. While their bats have been working, producing 5.31 runs per game, their pitching has been a mess and giving up 5.46 runs per contest.
