The New York Yankees try to pull even in the ALCS with the Detroit Tigers in Game 2 Sunday at 4 p.m., but they'll have to do it without injured star Derek Jeter.

The New York Yankees and Detroit Tigers play Game 2 of the American League Championship Series at 4:07 p.m. Sunday in New York. The game will be televised on TBS.

Hiroki Kuroda (16-11, 3.32 ERA) starts for the Yankees, trying to help New York avoid falling behind two games to none in the series. Kuroda faced the Tigers twice this season. He had a 3.38 ERA against them and had no-decisions in each start. The Yankees were 1-1 in those games.

Kuroda picked up a win in his lone start in the Division Series against Baltimore, giving up two runs in 8⅓ innings and striking out three. Kuroda is pitching on just three days rest.

Anibal Sanchez (9-13, 3.86 ERA) starts for the Tigers. Sanchez pitched against the Yankees once this season, giving up seven runs in three innings in a loss Aug. 8. Sanchez took a loss for the Tigers in his lone playoff start this season, giving up two runs over 6 ⅓ innings against Oakland.
