NEW YORK -- The unfamiliar feeling of the New York Yankees playing a postseason game without Derek Jeter was trumped only by their all-too-familiar inability to score runs Sunday. The Tigers watched starter Anibal Sanchez become the latest pitcher to handcuff the once-powerful New York lineup, and Detroit squeezed out just enough to beat a masterful Hiroki Kuroda 3-0 at Yankee Stadium. The victory in Game 2 of the American League Championship Series gives the Tigers a commanding 2-0 lead along with the comfort of knowing ace Justin Verlander will be ready to go in Game 3 in Detroit on Tuesday. Sanchez (1-1) was brilliant in limiting the punch-less Yankees to three hits in seven innings. He struck out seven and allowed a runner to reach scoring position in only three innings. The Tigers were helped by a blown call that extended the eighth inning and allowed Detroit to tack on two runs, eventually leading to the ejection of Yankees manager Joe Girardi and, likely, more debate ...

They also went from following Mr Postseason to being a bunch of leaderless parts that don't seem to fit together.The parts don't seem to fit together because there is not enough glue.
