The New York Yankees were able to have a successful series against the Detroit Tigers at home.

Detroit has had a disappointing season for their standards, but this is still a very talented team, and an important one for the Yankees to have a series win against.

Adam Warren helped set the tone for the Yankees in the series, as he was able to win the first game of the series against Justin Verlander by a score of 7-2. New York’s offense would continue to thrive in Game 2, as they won the game 14-3.

With the series win in hand, the Yankees turned to their ace Masahiro Tanaka on Sunday looking for a sweep, but instead ran into a motivated Tigers’ lineup. J.D. Martinez was the main thorn in the side of the Yankees on Sunday, as he hit three homeruns in the final game to ensure his team a victory.

A series win against the Tigers is a very good thing for the Yankees, as they continue their long stretch without an off day.

Here are five takeaways from the Yankees’ series win against the Tigers.
