The Yankees couldn’t solve Max Scherzer, and they couldn’t take a two-game lead ini this five-game division series. A ninth-inning Yankees rally was enough to make it close, but the Tigers got out of Yankee Stadium with a 5-3 win this afternoon, evening this division series as it shifts to Detroit. Scherzer pitched six scoreless innings and carried a no-hitter through 5.1. Freddy Garcia pitched fairly well, but a first-inning home run and a sixth-inning error hurt him, letting the Tigers take a 4-0 lead before the Yankees had so much as a single. Cano had a chance to win it in the ninth, but he grounded to second base with runners at first and second, ending the game and sending this series to Comerica.
