TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Justin Upton hit a two-run homer, his fifth, and the Tigers beat the Yankees 6-3 in Grapefruit League play Tuesday.
Detroit finally got to Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka after being held hitless over 10 2/3 innings and three starts. Ian Kinsler singled, Alex Presley doubled him home and Presley scored on a throwing error by catcher Gary Sanchez.
Tanaka, who finished the spring with a 0.38 ERA, went five innings and yielded three hits. He struck out six.
Aaron Judge, competing with Aaron Hicks to start in right field, hit his third homer for New York.
Detroit starter Michael Fulmer, who tweaked his right ankle again, gave up a run and three hits in five innings. The Tigers told Anibal Sanchez he will pitch out of the bullpen.
