In the bottom of the eighth, the Yankees didn't score, again.
And the umpires kept on helping the Tigers. After Ichiro Suzuki led off with an easy fly to center, Robinson Cano came up and took two strikes from left-hander Phil Coke. The thing was, though, both pitches were probably a few inches outside. That's just how it's been going for Canó lately. He got robbed by an umpire at first base in Game 1, and this time he hit Coke's third pitch to Prince Fielder, who tagged first base for the out. Canó, one of the best players in the American League, is now 2 for 32 (.063) in the postseason.
Heading to the ninth inning, it's still 3-0 Tigers ... and we'll still wondering who will fill the closer's role in Game 2, after Jose Valverde's meltdown in Game 1.
