Yankees vs. Tigers ALCS Game 4 score: Yankees continue to trail after 6 innings

The Tigers lead the Yankees 6-1 after six innings of Game 4, with the Yankees needing to win to extend their season another night. Both starting pitchers have been taken out of the game, with CC Sabathia lasting just 3.2 innings. The Yankees were held hitless through the first five innings by Tigers starter Max Scherzer.

The Tigers scored four runs in the bottom of the fourth to extend the lead to 6-0, and chased CC Sabathia from the game during the inning. Omar Infante singled before Miguel Cabrera hit a two-run home run that made it 4-0. Delmon Young then singled ahead of Jhonny Peralta's two-run homer that put the Tigers up by six. Andy Dirks followed the second homerun of the inning with a double which ended the day for Sabathia.

The Yankees recorded their first hit and got on the board in the top of the sixth inning. Eduardo Nunez led off the inning with a triple, with Nick Swisher doubling him home. Swisher advanced to third on a fielder's choice before Mark Teixeira walked to end the evening for Max Scherzer. Drew Smyly entered the game to face pinch hitter Alex Rodriguez, and induced a weak fly ball to end the inning.

Joba Chamberlain finished the sixth inning pitching for the Yankees, while Drew Smyly has only faced one batter for the Tigers.
