Capuano Outpitches Verlander, Yankees Top Tigers

NEW YORK (AP) – Chris Capuano outpitched Justin Verlander while Brian McCann and Chase Headley homered to send the New York Yankees past the Detroit Tigers 5-1 Wednesday night.

The Yankees improved to 2-1 in these three straight games started for Detroit by AL Cy Young Award winners. New York edged Max Scherzer on Monday, then David Price got a no-decision Tuesday in a game the Tigers won in the 12th.

Capuano gave up an unearned run and five hits in 6 2-3 innings, striking out eight and walking one. The Yankees got the 35-year-old lefty from Colorado last month after he began the season with Boston.

Adam Warren (2-5) got four outs for the win.

Verlander (10-10) allowed two runs and five hits in seven innings, walking one and fanning five.

Headley homered in the fifth inning, then McCann hit a tiebreaking solo shot off Verlander in the seventh.
