Saturday's matchup between the New York Yankees and the Detroit Tigers at Yankee Stadium is the second in a three game series. The Yankees are 11-8 after winning game one on Friday and are only a game and a half out of first place in the A.L. East.
Starter Freddy Garcia is starting for what may be his last turn in the rotation. Andy Pettite is nearly ready to return and Garcia failed to pitch past the third inning in his last start. Derek Jeter's 15 game hitting streak was snapped on Friday.
