Yankees Held to Six Hits In Another Shutout Loss

June 21, 1958 at Briggs Stadium
Tigers 1, Yankees 0  (38-21)

The Yankees outhit the Tigers 6-4 but the Tigers scored the lone run in a solid pitchers duel between Frank Lary and Duke Maas.  Maas gave up just one run on four hits and a walk with three strikeouts in seven innings but one of those hits was a solo homer by Al Kaline that proved to be the difference.

Norm Siebern was the only Yankee with a pair of hits.  All six Yankees hits were singles.
