Tigers vs. Yankees score: Detroit, New York scoreless after 6 innings of Game 2

Looking to take a two-game lead in the series, the Detroit Tigers remain deadlocked with the New York Yankees, 0-0, after six innings of play in Sunday's Game 2 of the ALCS.

Yankees pitcher Hiroki Kuroda has been electric through six innings with only one hit yielded to Detroit batters. The veteran right-hander has already fanned eight batters in the outing, and remains on track to pitch much further with only 71 pitches to his credit.

Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez has largely been able to match Kuroda inning-for-inning however, and has only given up three New York hits over six frames. Sanchez has been forced to a higher number of pitches than his counterpart, but also stands a great chance to pitch deep into the game with 86 total pitches thus far.

Along with making a key defensive play in the bottom of the sixth to save a possible New York run, Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta is the only Detroit player to record a hit against Kuroda. Peralta is now hitting an insane .571 in the postseason and remains one of the biggest x-factors for the Tigers going forward.
