NEW YORK (AP) -- Detroit rookie Michael Fulmer dominated on Old-Timers' Day at Yankee Stadium, winning his fifth straight start while extending his scoreless streak to 28 1/3 innings to lead the Tigers over New York 4-1 Sunday.   

With Whitey Ford, Reggie Jackson and several more Hall of Famers and World Series MVPs on hand for the pregame festivities, the 23-year-old Fulmer by far was the biggest star of the afternoon.   

Fulmer (7-1) blanked the Yankees on two hits for six innings and left with a 2.52 ERA. He's won six consecutive decisions overall -- in a tremendous string of five starts, he's yielded just one run and 13 hits in 34 1/3 innings.  

Fulmer struck out three and walked three, mixing a fastball in the mid-90s (mph) with an effective changeup. He escaped his only serious jam by retiring Carlos Beltran on a flyball with the bases loaded to end the fifth.
