NYY 8 DET 4 (NYY lead 1-0)

The Yankees take the early lead against the Tigers thanks in part to the Captain, Derek Jeter. He went 5-5 including a solo homerun in the 8th inning last night. This marked only the sixth time that somebody had a 5 hit team in playoff history. Other major contributers were Bobby Abreu who had 4 RBIs, Jason Giambi who hit a 2-run homer in the 3rd, and Chien-Ming Wang. Wang 6.2 IP 8 H 3 R 1 BB 4 Ks. The best ground ball pitcher kept his reputation last night with Wang getting 11 ground ball outs and only 4 flyball outs. Next game is tonight at 8:09 ET.

Tonight's pitching probables

DET- Justin Verlander
NYY- Mike Mussina
