Cy Young contender Justin Verlander struck out eleven and despite allowing two runs in the first and another two in the seventh, he held the Yankees at bay through much of the game.
CC Sabathia took the mound for the Yankees and left the game having given up four runs in 5.1 innings of work and throwing 106 pitches.
Sabathia was relieved by Rafael Soriano who immediately gave up a homerun to Delmon Young to put the Tigers up 5-4 to stay.
The Tigers now have the edge in the series with a 2-1 lead and Game 4 scheduled for Comerica Park tonight.
