The Detroit Tigers won Game 2 of the ALCS, 3-0, with Anibal Sanchez and Phil Coke silencing the New York Yankees lineup.

Hiroki Kuroda retired 15 straight batters to start the afternoon, but received no run support.

The Tigers finally broke through against him in the seventh. Robinson Cano couldn't turn a double play on Delmon Young, and Quintin Berry scored from third base.

An incorrect call from umpire Jeff Nelson the next inning opened up the flood gates. Avisail Garcia added insurance with an opposite-field single off Boone Logan. Then, Miguel Cabrera tacked on another run against Joba Chamberlain.

Looking ahead, Tigers ace Justin Verlander will take the mound on Tuesday at Comerica Park with the luxury of a 2-0 series lead. The Yankees, meanwhile, have right-hander Phil Hughes scheduled to oppose him.

FINAL: DET 3, NYY 0
