Yankees Can’t Solve Verlander, Tigers

Justin Verlander matched a career high with 14 strikeouts and got home-run support from Prince Fielder an Miguel Cabrera, leading the Detroit Tigers over the New York Yankees 7-2 Monday night.

Verlander (12-7) threw 132 pitches, his most in a regular-season game, and sent the Tigers to their fifth straight win.

Verlander gave up two unearned runs after his fielding error extended the fifth inning. The AL MVP and Cy Young Award winner wound up going eight innings, and got a huge roar when he left the mound.

Detroit has won 19 of its last 23 home games. The AL East-leading Yankees have lost 11 of 17 overall.

Ivan Nova (10-6) was roughed up for seven runs and 11 hits — matching a career high — in 5 1-3 innings.
