"Our fans tried to push the same, despite 70,000 Tottenham supporters". "I was not expecting Pedro's ball to be honest but as soon as I saw it coming, I knew I was going to try to shoot, and I was a bit lucky when it went underneath the goalkeeper to make it 2-1".

Nowhere is that more apparent - or worrisome - than in the performance of veteran starter Jordan Zimmermann , who was roughed up again Wednesday in a 10-2 loss to the New York Yankees at Comerica Park.
