The New York Yankees offense continues to be anemic as they fall 3-0 to the Tigers

The New York Yankees were defeated by the Detroit Tigers by the score of 3-0 on Sunday evening. The game took place at Bronx, New York. Hiroki Kuroda started and pitched great. He was pitching on three days rest for the first time in his major league career. The bullpen wasn’t great but there was also a blown call that cost the Yankees. The offense was terrible. Anibel Sanchez started for the Tigers and pitched very well and so did their bullpen. The Tigers offense was led by Miguel Cabrera. 
Kuroda pitched 7 2/3 innings giving up five hits and three runs with no walks and 11 strikeouts. Kuroda lost the game, Boone Logan didn’t record an out and gave up a hit, Joba Chamberlain gave up a hit without recording an out and Clay Rapada walked the only batter that he faced. Cody Eppley pitched 1 1/3 innings giving up a hit and struck out two. Sanchez won a game pitching seven innings giving up three hits and no runs with three walks and seven strikeouts. Phil Coke saved a game pitching two innings giving up a hit and struck out three.

Mark Teixeira had a hit, Raul Ibanez had a hit and drew two walks and Alex Rodriguez had a hit. Curtis Granderson drew a walk, Nick Swisher had a hit and Teixeira hit a double. The Yankees were 0-5 with runners in scoring position and they left seven men on base. Granderson had a stolen base and Ibanez was caught stealing.

Austin Jackson had a hit, Quintin Berry had a hit and Avisail Garcia had a hit and an RBI. Cabrera had two hits and an RBI, Prince Fielder drew a walk and Delmon Young had a hit and Jhonny Peralta had two hits. Omar Infante had a hit, Berry hit a double and the Tigers were 3-9 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base. Sanchez committed an error.

The Tigers took a 1-0 lead in the seventh inning and then a 3-0 lead in the eighth inning. Young hit into a force out scoring a run and Garcia and Cabrera hit RBI singles. The final score was 3-0 as the Yankees couldn’t get anything going all game once again.

The Tigers hold a 2-0 lead in the best of seven series. The teams will have a travel day on Monday and then play game three on Tuesday night in Detroit. The next three games if necessary will be played there. The Yankees will try to get a win in game three against Justin Verlander with Phil Hughes on the mound. If the Yankees don’t get a win they will be facing a 3-0 deficit and need to win four straight to keep their season going.
