Even Sanchez is throwing well.
While I don't at all disagree that Detroit pitched well, the Yankees were just in a dreadful and inexplicable hitting slump. They didn't hit well against Baltimore, either. The Yankees scored the second most runs in baseball in the regular season, and had the highest team OPS, and yet just couldn't buy a hit. Cano, Granderson, and Swisher were particularly awful. Just one of those things I guess. Bad timing.
