Daily Roundup, 10/14/12

The Yankees’ offensive futility continued as they lost 3-0 today.
- Hiroki Kuroda had a perfect game through five innings, and took a loss.
– He had 11 strikeouts, tied for his career high.
— A-Rod came up as the possible third out in the bottom of the ninth, and didn’t make the last out.
—- He was called safe.
—– At one point, a hit-and-run was attempted… with Raul Ibanez on base and Russell Martin at the plate.
—— Ibanez batted cleanup and Martin batted fifth.
——- The way they’re both hitting this season, and the way the rest of the team’s hitting, that isn’t at all irrational either.
——– Robinson Cano has the longest 0-fer in the playoffs ever.
——— He finished the regular season by going 24-for-39.
———- The last time the Yankees played a postseason game without Derek Jeter was October 8, 1995.
———– Phil Coke got the save for the Tigers.
———— Detroit starters haven’t allowed a run since the fifth inning of Game 3 of the ALDS.

The Giants haven’t won a game at home this postseason.
- Carlos Beltran homered again. His postseason line is .381/.492/.848 – for his career.
– Madison Bumgarner’s allowed ten runs in 8 IP this postseason -
— he allowed five in 20.2 in 2010.
—- Then again, neither starter made it out of the fourth in this one.
—– Eleven relievers were used, and only Tim Lincecum (!!!) got more than three outs.
