Live Updates: New York Yankees vs. Detroit Tigers — Spring Training Game 6


TAMPA — The Yankees will host the Tigers at George M. Steinbrenner Field on Friday afternoon as New York looks to bounce back from Thursday's 15-0 loss to the Phillies.

Here are Friday's starting lineups and starting pitchers:

New York Yankees

DJ LeMahieu 2B

Aaron Judge RF

Aaron Hicks CF

Giancarlo Stanton DH

Luke Voit 1B

Gleyber Torres SS

Brett Gardner LF

Gary Sánchez C

Miguel Andújar 3B

Domingo Germán SP

Beyond Andújar, this lineup features eight position players that are guaranteed a spot on the Opening Day roster. Gio Urshela made his debut of the spring on Thursday, but quickly gets a day off before he starts playing in consecutive games. 

Meanwhile, Domingo Germán has his first start of the spring, kicking off the competition for the fifth spot in the Yankees' starting rotation. He's also attempting to regain the trust of his teammates after serving a suspension for violating MLB's domestic violence protocols.

Detroit Tigers

Robbie Grossman DH

Jacoby Jones CF

Willi Castro SS

Wilson Ramos C

Spencer Torkelson 3B

Harold Castro 1B

Akil Baddoo LF

Riley Greene RF

Greg Garcia 2B

Matthew Boyd SP

Biggest story from Detroit's lineup is the stud in the five spot. Spencer Torkelson was the No. 1 pick in last year's MLB draft. Should be exciting to see him in action against big-league pitching!

As we get closer to first pitch here at George M. Steinbrenner Field, here's some related reading from Yankees camp:

First inning

Domingo Germán was perfect in the first frame. He struck out the first batter he faced (Robbie Grossman) on three pitches and ended the inning with a second punch out as well. If he can pitch well this spring, while working to ingratiate himself in the clubhouse, we might be looking at New York's No. 5 starter.

Second inning

One heck of a debut for Domingo Germán. He strikes out four, throws two scoreless frames with one hit. 31 pitches, 21 strikes. Positioning himself early on to be in serious consideration for a rotation spot.

Fourth inning

Gleyber Torres puts the Yankees on the board with his first home run of the spring, sneaking a fly ball to right center over the wall. It's 1-0, Yankees.

Fifth inning

Aaron Judge lines a booming double into the gap to put runners on second and third, but New York comes up empty. Giancarlo Stanton nearly had a two-run double, but Detroit's center fielder was able to take a hit away.

Eighth inning

Detroit pushes one run across off pitching prospect Luis Medina, who is struggling to find the zone on the mound. We're tied 1-1.

Ninth inning

FINAL: Yankees 1, Tigers 1

This one ends ... in a tie. New York had a runner on third with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, but a strikeout ended this game at 1-1. No extra innings in spring training...

The Yankees will be back at it on Saturday afternoon on the road against the Pirates before returning home to George M. Steinbrenner the following day.
