5 Stats from the Detroit Tigers 2-1 Win over the New York Yankees

  • 11

J.D. Martinez and Yoenis Cespedes both drove in runs in the win. It was the eleventh RBI for each player on the season.

  • 2

The number of outs recorded by reliever Joba Chamberlain on only two pitches. The former Yankee inherited a jam as of stepping on the mound, but got out of it with only two pitches.

  • 0

The number of baserunners allowed by closer Joakim Soria in a perfect ninth inning. It will be interesting to see if Soria is afforded any closing opportunities once Joe Nathan returns. Additionally, it will be curious to see, assuming Nathan closes games again, how long of a leash Nathan is afforded given Soria’s success finishing games this season.

  • 7

The number of strikeouts by Tigers starter Alfredo Simon. The former Cincinnati Reds pitcher had five punch outs on the year entering the game.

  • 1

The number of runs scored by Victor Martinez. V-Mart clearly isn’t 100%, but hustled around from second to score the winning run on one good leg.
