Anibal Sanchez pitched 7 innings, allowed 3 hits, 3 walks and fired 7 Ks in a 3-0 shutout of the Yankees.
Phillip Douglas Coke closed the deal. Coke tossed the final 2 innings, allowed 1 hit and struck-out 3 Yankees batters.
New York starter Hiroki Kuroda had a perfect game until the 6th. Kuroda ended up hurling 7 2/3 innings, allowed 5 hits, 3 runs and sat down 11 Tigers hitters.

As we all witnessed, on Sunday, second base umpire Jeff Nelson completely missed a call when Robinson Cano made a swipe tag after Omar Infante made a head-first dive back to second. Replays showed Cano making the tag before Infante's hand touched the base - but Nelson called Infante safe.
Avisail Garcia, Miggy and Delmon 'Yankees Killer' Young drove in the Tigers' runs.
Phil Coke is just nasty in the Big Apple...
