Smyly gets first big league win, Tigers top Yanks
NEW YORK (AP) — Miguel Cabrera homered and drove in three runs and Drew Smyly pitched into the seventh inning for his first major league win to help the Detroit Tigers snap a five-game losing streak by beating the New York Yankees 7-5 Saturday.
Andy Dirks hit a three-run homer in the first off Freddy Garcia. Playing Delmon Young's usual position of left field, Dirks made a pair of nice defensive plays, too, running down balls that looked like extra-base hits off the bat.
Young was placed on the restricted list earlier Saturday to be evaluated under baseball's employee assistance program. He was arrested early Friday on a hate crime harassment charge following an encounter at his hotel during which police say he yelled anti-Semitic epithets and appeared intoxicated.
