Perfect games are delightful, until a pitcher is throwing one against your team into the late innings for the second night in a row. Gerrit Cole was absolutely obliterating the Tigers tonight, and to make matters worse, the Yankees offense was working on all cylinders in a nasty blowout.
Thankfully, the perfecto only lasted 6 2⁄3 and the Tigers managed a baserunner in Schoop, but that didn’t make it easier to take just how gross this game was for Tigers’ fans. So instead of rehashing the blow-by-blow of each inning, I’m just going to show you the damage. If you didn’t watch this game, I honestly don’t recommend punishing yourself with this recap, because it was a bad game and you’re lucky you missed it.
Anyway, it was bad and the Tigers lost.
Final: Yankees 13, Tigers 0
