Tigers Beat Yankees In Home Opener

Posted: 2:38 PM Apr 5, 2013
Reporter: Associated Press

Prince Fielder hit a go-ahead, three-run homer in the fifth inning and added a soaring, two-run shot in the seventh to lift the Detroit Tigers to an 8-3 win over the New York Yankees on Friday in the Comerica Park opener.

Doug Fister (1-0) allowed three runs on six hits -- including Kevin Youkilis' two-run homer over five innings. Drew Smyly pitched four perfect innings and struck out five for his first career save.

Ivan Nova (0-1) gave up four runs and five hits over 4 2-3 innings.

The banged-up Yankees took another hit, too. Eduardo Nunez, filling in for injured shortstop Derek Jeter, was hit on the right biceps by Fister's pitch in the fourth inning and left the game. X-rays were negative.
