The Tigers have been basically untouchable at home so far this young season. This is even more impressive considering they are without Justin Verlander who is still out with a strained right triceps. In his place the Yankees will face Kyle Lobstein, a 25 year old lefty who earned his second big league win on April 12th against the Indians. With any luck runs will be easier to come up with tonight then they were last night against Alfredo Simon who held the Yankees to one run on a Mark Teixeira home run.
