Yankees (63-45) Vs. Tigers (59-50): Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Pitchers

The New York Yankees will look to snap a five-game winning streak by the Detroit Tigers Tuesday, as the two clash in Game 2 of their four-game series at Comerica Park (7:05 p.m. ET on YES Network). Phil Hughes (11-8) will take the mound for the Yankees and oppose the Tigers' Rick Porcello (8-6).

On Monday, the Yankees dropped the series' opener, 7-2, as Tigers' ace Justin Verlander shutdown the New York offense. In his last start against the Yankees, Porcello also held the Yankees in check, as he tossed six innings and allowed just one run.

Meanwhile, Hughes is looking to find his stuff and the Tigers could be the team to do it against. Earlier in the year, Hughes pitched a complete game at Detroit allowing just one run.
