Looking to bring a 2-0 series lead back to the Motor City, the Detroit Tigers offense has been shut down through three innings of Game 2 by New York Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda. Neither team has managed to score yet, but Detroit is still looking for its first baserunner as Kuroda does his thing.
Kuroda, quietly one of the better pitchers in baseball over the past few years, has certainly looked the part so far on Sunday. Through three innings, Kuroda hasn't allowed a single hit or walk, and seven of the nine outs he's recorded have been by the strikeout.
Luckily, the Tigers have gotten a strong performance from their own starting pitcher, right-hander Anibal Sanchez. Acquired from Miami during the season, Sanchez has done enough to keep the Yankees off the scoreboard even though they've gotten mustered two hits and a walk already.
