NEW YORK (AP) — Anibal Sanchez shut down a Yankees lineup minus injured Derek Jeter, and the Detroit Tigers capitalized on a missed call by an umpire to beat New York 3-0 Sunday 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 their captain broke his ankle in the 12th inning of a 6-4 loss.
Making his second postseason start, Sanchez pitched three-hit ball deep into the game to make Tigers manager Jim Leyland's handling of a bullpen without struggling closer Jose Valverde a lot easier.
The Tigers scored twice in the eighth after second base umpire Jeff Nelson missed a call at second base.
Game 3 in the best-of-seven series is Tuesday night in Detroit, with reigning AL MVP Justin Verlander starting for the Tigers.
Derek Jeter has broken his ankle and is out for the rest of the postseason.
Three innings after Raul Ibanez sent the 47,122 in Yankee Stadium into a frenzy with a tying two-run homer, the durable Yankees captain stunned the crowd silent when he didn't get up after making a diving stop on Jhonny Peralta's groundball in the 12th inning.
From delirium to terror in three innings.
The New York Yankees shortstop dived to his left for the sharp grounder and winced in pain as he flipped the ball toward second base. He then rolled onto his stomach, and a collective gasp was heard at Yankee Stadium when he didn't get up.
Jeter remained on his side, rolling slightly, as trainer Steve Donahue and manager Joe Girardi checked him out. He was helped up, and he put an arm around Girardi and Donahue. They coaxed him off the field with Jeter not moving his left leg as chants of "Derek Jeter!" rang out.
