Tigers rally in 7th, Simon sharp in 2-1 win over Yankees

DETROIT (AP) The newcomers to Detroit's starting rotation are certainly pulling their weight so far.

Alfredo Simon pitched impressively into the eighth inning Monday night, and the Tigers added another victory to baseball's best record with a 2-1 win over the New York Yankees. J.D. Martinez and Yoenis Cespedes hit consecutive RBI singles in the seventh to help Detroit rally.

Simon (3-0) allowed a run and seven hits in 7 1-3 innings, striking out seven without a walk. He and Shane Greene were the less-heralded additions who replaced Max Scherzer and Rick Porcello in Detroit's rotation. So far, they're a combined 6-0 with a 1.03 ERA.
