Tigers drop Game 1 against Yankees and fail to protect 1-0 lead in ninth inning

new York — This must be like déjà vu for Reese Olson. Or maybe he just accepts it as normal now.

The Tigers right-hander pitched another gem Friday night, shutting out the Yankees on two hits in five innings. But, as has been the case all season, he didn’t get much support from his offense.

“That’s part of it,” Olson said after the Yankees rallied from within two runs in the bottom of the ninth and beat the Tigers, 2-1, at Yankee Stadium. “I’m sure I’ll have a few outings throughout the year where we score 10, I give up five and we get the win. That’s just part of baseball.”
