Lyle Overbay is still experiencing flu-like symptoms and may not be available to play on Saturday, Girardi said. Overbay likely would not have started anyway against Price. Mark Reynolds started at first base for the second time in as many games.

• Saturday's loss was the Yankees' 16th in their last 21 games at Tropicana Field, dating back to July 21, 2011.

"We've had come-from-behind wins here lately," Girardi said. "We've won some games here lately. I don't think they're in our head. I think they're just a very good team."

• On this date in 1927, the Yankees defeated the Tigers, 9-5, at Detroit's Navin Field, as Wilcy Moore won his 15th game of the season. The win marked the start of an eight-game winning streak, the second of two eight-or-more-game runs that season.
