Derek Jeter returned to the New York Yankees' lineup for the second game of Friday's day-night doubleheader after being hit on the left elbow by a 94 mph fastball Thursday night.
The injury-depleted New York Yankees suffered another loss Friday when Eduardo Nunez, already filling in for the injured Derek Jeter at shortstop, was forced to leave the game against the Tigers after being hit with a pitch by Doug Fister.
The Yanks lost a series that, in the past, they almost surely would have won.
The only person capable of applying true clarity to the controversy over his hit-by-pitch deke was Derek Jeter himself. "It's really a big deal being made out of nothing," Jeter said.
