Anibal Sanchez flashes leather, snuffs Yankees' first-inning rally

It sure was nifty, though:

Hiroki Kuroda didn't show off his glove in the top of the second, but he did rack up his fifth strikeout already, despite pitching on short rest today. And so Game 2 is still scoreless, heading to the bottom of the second.
