Yankees 3, Tigers 7: Tyler Wade shines in loss to Detroit

New, comments

Wade’s double and triple led the way in an otherwise tame performance from the Yankees.

MLB: Spring Training-New York Yankees at Detroit Tigers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

This was yet another Yankees’ spring training game without video, but at least this time, there didn’t appear to be a ton of noteworthy things we missed.

The Yankees went on the road to play the Tigers, and seemingly didn’t light it up in any facet of the game. The starters just scored one run in a lineup with a couple players who will make the team out of the spring. The pitching staff allowed a bunch of runs, and the offense in the later innings didn’t get enough of those runs back, losing 7-3 to Detroit.

The game started well enough for the Yankees. Tyler Wade tripled in the game’s very first at bat. The next hitter was Neil Walker, who singled him home. However from there, the Tigers were mostly in control.

The Yankees’ sent a minor league heavy pitching staff to Lakeland, and it certainly showed. Starter Brady Lail gave up that early lead, allowing two runs on two hits and two walks in his 1.2 innings. Ben Heller also threw 1.2 innings, but he gave up three runs on three hits. Someone named Cody Carroll also gave up a run.

Somehow, Giovanny Gallegos was one of just a few Yankees who had a scoreless outing. Another was J.P. Feyereisen, who had a solid performance, striking out and giving up one hit in his inning. Matt Frawley coughed up another two runs in the bottom of the eighth, basically erasing the two runs the Yankees had scored in the top half of that inning. The Yankees couldn’t cut into the deficit any further in the ninth despite loading the bases, giving the Tigers a 7-3 win.

In addition to his triple, Wade continued his solid spring adding a double later in the game. Gleyber Torres went 1-3 with a double. Those were the only noteworthy people to do much of anything, unless you care about Erik Kratz’s single. Those two eighth inning runs came thanks to a Jorge Saez home run.

One notable thing that didn’t exactly come out of this game, but did come out of today was this:

After the spring he’s had so far, it’s hard to argue with it.
