In the five innings of Game 2, the Tigers hit exactly one ball out of the infield. And that was an easy fly ball.
But Jhonny Peralta, leading off the sixth inning, made it two balls out of the infield when he ripped a grounder into center field. Oh, and it was also the Tigers' first base hit of any sort.
Peralta would have been erased on a double play, but Kuroda -- a Gold Glover in Japan -- deflected Alex Avila's grounder, and so shortstop Jayson Nix was forced to throw to first base to retire Avila, with Peralta safe on second. The ground balls kept coming, though; Omar Infante grounded to third, and Austin Jackson grounded to shortstop.
So that's two balls out of the infield, one hit, and no runs for the Detroit Tigers.
But of course the Yankees still haven't scored, either. So in the bottom of the sixth, it's still Yankees 0, Tigers 0.
