2012 ALCS, Yankees vs. Tigers final score: New York falls 3-0 in Game 2

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Detroit Tigers, 3-0, on Sunday in Game 2 of the ALCS at Yankee Stadium. The Yankees trail the Tigers in the series, 2-0.

There was no scoring until the 7th inning due to a pair of gems pitched by Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda and Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez. The Yankees trailed 1-0 entering the 8th inning before this call at second base, which could have ended the top half of the inning, extended the inning.

This call was argued by Yankees manager Joe Girardi and he was ejected. The ejection was the fourth of the season for Girardi, in each case the Yankees were playing the Tigers.

After Girardi's ejection, the Tigers scored two runs when Avisail Garcia and Miguel Cabrera drove in runs with singles. Both of the earned runs were charged to starter Hiroki Kuroda who exited the game after pitching 7 2/3 innings. After Boone Logan, Joba Chamberlain and Clay Rapada gave up a combined two hits and a walk, Cody Eppley got a strikeout to end the inning.

The Yankees went down in order in the eighth inning but held Detroit to one hit in the ninth. Alex Rodriguez gave the Yankees some hope of a comeback in the ninth inning with a two-out single. He reached second base during Curtis Granderson's at-bat, but Granderson struck out to end the game. The Yankees finished the game 0-5 with runners in scoring position.

Sanchez picked up the victory going seven innings and giving up three hits and three walks while striking out seven batters. Kuroda took the loss. He gave up three earned runs on five hits while striking out 11 batters. Phil Coke got the save for the Tigers after pitching the last two scoreless innings. Coke struck out three batters while allowing just one hit.

Game 3 of the series will be played on Tuesday at Comerica Park.
