In a must-win Game 5, the Yankees burned through nearly their entire pitching staff, but it was missed scoring opportunities that made the difference and left the Tigers celebrating at Yankee Stadium. Detroit is moving on. The Yankees are finished. A 3-2 Detroit win tonight sealed the division series and ended the Yankees season. After Ivan Nova lasted just two innings, the Yankees used six different relievers to allowed just one more run, but the offense left 11 runners on base, including the bases loaded twice. The Yankees outscored the Tigers 28-17 this series, but on nights the offense sputtered, the Tigers were able to win three games by a total of four runs.
