October 14, 2012 – Hiroki Kuroda’s official line for Game 2 of the ALCS states that he gave up three runs in 7 2/3 innings of work — but he was a lot better than that.
With two outs in the eighth, Kuroda gave up a single to Austin Jackson, and as the lead base runner Omar Infante over ran second base, Nick Swisher threw a strike to Robinson Cano. After watching replay after replay of the action at second base, it appeared that Cano tagged Infante before he touched second base. The umpire at second base called Infante safe and Kuroda was lifted from the game.
After Kuroda was pulled, Boone Logan allowed a single that brought a run to the plate, and Joba Chamberlain did the same. After giving up one run during the entire time he was in the game, Kuroda saw two more Tigers reach the dish.
