Verlander Delivers; Detroit Tigers One Win From World Series [View all]
DETROIT -- Pit a nearly untouchable pitching staff against a slumbering offense and it is a recipe for a sweep.
The pitching-rich Tigers are on the verge of sweeping the struggling New York Yankees right out of the postseason after Justin Verlander allowed just one run on three hits over 8 1/3 innings to lead Detroit to a 2-1 victory Tuesday night in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series at Comerica Park.
BOX SCORE: Tigers 2, Yankees 1
The Tigers could finish the best-of-seven series Wednesday and win their first AL pennant since 2006 when Max Scherzer faces Yankees ace CC Sabathia in Game 4 at 8:07 p.m. ET.
