NEW YORK (AP) - Anibal Sanchez shut down a Yankees lineup minus injured Derek Jeter, and Detroit capitalized on a missed call by an umpire to beat New York 3-0 for a 2-0 lead in the AL championship series.
Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda pitched perfect ball into the sixth inning. But the slumping New York hitters looked lost a day after Jeter broke his ankle in the 12th inning of a 6-4 loss.
Sanchez pitched three-hit ball deep into the game.
The Tigers scored twice in the eighth after second base umpire Jeff Nelson missed a call at second base. Avisail Garcia and Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera took advantage of the gift to come with insurance rbi hits.
Game 3 in the best-of-seven series is Tuesday night in Detroit, with reigning AL MVP Justin Verlander starting for the Tigers.
The Yankees offensive woes are illustrated by All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano who has set a record by going hitless in 26 post-season at-bats. The Yankees managed just four hits.
