NEW YORK (AP) - A player stood at shortstop at Yankee Stadium, yet the shortstop was missing.
For 16 years and 158 consecutive games, Derek Jeter had been in the New York Yankees' postseason lineup, the Lou Gehrig and Cal Ripken of October.
But Jeter was absent for Game 2 of the AL championship series against Detroit on Sunday, a day after breaking his left ankle while fielding a grounder.
Jayson Nix took Jeter's spot in the New York lineup.
