The Yankees will host Justin Verlander and the Detroit Tigers in a weekend series starting Friday.
The New York Yankees will host the Detroit Tigers for a three game series this weekend, beginning Friday night, with the tough task of facing reigning AL MVP and Cy Young, Justin Verlander. Ivan Nova will oppose Verlander.
Ivan Nova (3-0) vs. Justin Verlander (2-1), Friday
C.C. Sabathia (2-0) vs. Max Scherzer (1-2), Sunday
The Yankees limp into the series, having lost two consecutive games to the Texas Rangers. But not to be out-limped are the Detroit Tigers, who have lost four straight and six of their last seven games. Their only win in their last seven – Justin Verlander's last start. The AL Cy Young will look to stop the bleeding Friday in Yankee Stadium.
