It came down to the final question in this one.

New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano and actor Denzel Washington were placed in a battle of wits on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno on NBC Thursday night. The subject was Yankees trivia questions.

Cano had the early 5-1 lead, but Denzel came roaring back to tie the game at 5-5.

The final question from Leno was — "Where did Lou Gehrig go to college?"
