Hicks homers twice as Yankees beat Tigers 8-6
(DETROIT) – Aaron Hicks came sliding across home plate on his stomach, a little tired but plenty excited after a rare inside-the-park home run. Four innings later, Hicks hit another homer that cleared the wall by plenty, but it was his first tour of the bases that was the highlight of this night. Hicks' homers sent the Yankees to an 8-6 victory over Detroit on Friday. Ronald Torreyes added three hits for New York, which handed the skidding Tigers their fifth straight loss. Hicks came up with a runner on second in the second inning and hit a drive to right-center that bounced off the wall and past center fielder Leonys Martin. The ball rolled across a vacant area of turf while Hicks circled the bases for the Yankees' first inside-the-park homer since 2011. He was able to trot home in the sixth on his homer to right. Jordan Montgomery (1-0) allowed three runs and five hits in six-plus innings. New York's bullpen struggled to hold on, but Aroldis Chapman struck out the side in the ninth for his second save. Mike Fiers (1-1) gave up five earned runs in 5 2/3 innings for the Tigers. James McCann and Jeimer Candelario homered for Detroit.
