Tigers Win at New York, 6-2
The Detroit Tigers defeated the New York Yankees, 6-2, at Yankee Stadium. Detroit left fielder Jason Heyward was named player of the game for his superb performance. He went 3-4 with a home run, a double, and a walk. He scored 2 runs and drove in 2. Matthew Liberatore got the win, improving to 3-1. He pitched 5 innings, giving up 1 hits and 1 run, while striking out 10 and walking 1. The Tigers are off to a tough start, getting just their 11th win in 28 games.

Detroit used the timely hitting of Xavier Noonan to capture the win. The third baseman socked a 3-run home run in the top of the sixth inning to put the Tigers ahead, 3-1. It was his only hit in 2 at-bats, but it was a big one.

"I had a good game," said Noonan. "Winning makes it even better."
