After watching an exciting finish to last night's game, the baseball world gets a quick turnaround in the Big Apple, as the New York Yankees played host to the Detroit Tigers on Sunday just hours after a heartbreaking 6-4 loss in Game 1 of the ALCS.
Entering the afternoon, it was widely known that the Yankees would have to rely heavily on starting pitcher Hiroki Kuroda after the team used up all but one arm in the bullpen on Saturday.
Kuroda would prove to be extremely effective for New York, going 7.2 innings while giving up just four hits and two runs. Still, it wouldn't be enough, as the Yanks would fall to Anibal Sanchez and the Detroit Tigers.
There will be immense pressure on New York, as it heads to Detroit with a 2-0 deficit, but for now, here are some contributing factors to Game 2's 3-0 final.
