S.T. Game 13. Yanks fall, 6-5 to Tigers. Stanton Homers.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

LF Giancarlo Stanton hit a massive 2-run HR, but the Yanks fell to Detroit 6-5 in S.T. action Friday night to go to 6-6-1 on the spring training season.

Masahiro Tanaka struck out the first four batters he faced before running into trouble. He had 5 K, as did Domingo German who also put up the K’s but also gave up runs.

A tough day for SS Troy Tulowitzki, 0 for 3 with 3 strikeouts.

The Yanks loaded the bases with no out in the second but didn’t score.

SS Kyle Holder 2 hits, 2 RBI, solo HR.
RF Isiaih Gilliam 2 for 2
C Austin Romine 2 hits, RBI.

Tanaka 3 1/3 IP, 2 R, 4 H, 1 W, 5 K. Gave up 1 HR.
Britton 2/3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 W, 0 K.
Betances 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 W, 2 K.
German (L) 3 IP, 3 R, 2 ER, 5 H, 1 W, 5 K. 1 HBP
Kahnle 1 IP, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 H, 0 W, 1 K.

Meanwhile Esteban Loaiza, briefly with the Yanks in 2004, got 3 years for cocaine possession (with intent to distribute some 44 pounds worth), and once time is served, will be deported.

Lastly, I’d like to welcome two new nieces into the world! They were born Friday morning.
