PREGAME NOTES:

Since the Yanks were just three games back of the division lead and just one game back of the Wild Card on July 26, the Yanks are just 15-19 and their staff has compiled a horrific 5.64 ERA.

Sidney Ponson is a lifetime 4-4, 5.92 ERA, 1.54 WHIP in 8 starts against the Tigers. He is 3-4, 5.64 ERA, 1.66 WHIP in his 11 starts as a Yankee this season.

Justin Verlander is a lifetime 2-0, 4.67 ERA, 1.38 WHIP in 3 starts against the Yanks. He is just 2-5, 6.47 ERA, 1.57 WHIP over his last 7 starts on the season.
