New York Yankees 13, Detroit Tigers 4: Game 15 Player of the Game

Who was last night's Tigers player of the game in their 13-4 loss to the Yankees?

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Tigers suffered their second nine-run loss of the season last night, falling 13-4 to the New York Yankees in a snowy (and potentially needless) game at Comerica Park. David Price was knocked around for eight runs on 10 hits in 2 1/3 innings, while other pitchers didn't fare much better.

Yoenis Cespedes was the only Tigers hitter to collect more than one hit. He went 2 for 3 on the night, driving in a run with a two-out single in the bottom of the first inning. Cespedes' first hit helped key a four-run rally that made the game close in the early innings. He also singled in the sixth inning.

J.D. Martinez worked a bases loade, two-out walk in the bottom of the first inning to score the Tigers' first run of the game. The walk, along with Cespedes' single in the next at-bat, helped get the Tigers back into the game early on. Martinez came around to score later in the inning, but went 0 for 3 otherwise.

Ian Krol threw a pair of scoreless innings on Wednesday, the best that any Tigers pitcher fared tonight. After a rough outing on Tuesday, Krol struck out two and did not allow a hit in his two frames. He walked two batters, though.

Joba Chamberlain threw a scoreless inning and did not allow a baserunner. His ERA is still at 0.00 for the season.

Game 14 Player of the Game

In slightly happier times, Kyle Lobstein was voted the Player of the Game despite taking the loss in Tuesday's 5-2 defeat against the Yankees. Lobstein allowed just one run in six innings, but a lifeless offense and a bad inning from his bullpen resulted in his first loss of the year.
