DETROIT, May 13 (UPI) -- Justin Verlander and two relievers combined on a four-hitter Thursday in pacing the Detroit Tigers to a 6-0 victory over the New York Yankees.

Miguel Cabrera, who drove in three runs, and Brennan Boesch backed the Detroit pitching effort with solo home runs as the Tigers won 3-of-4 games in the series against New York.
