TIGERS BEAT YANKEES AND GO TO THE WORLD SERIES
Fri, 19 Oct 2012 02:30 AM EDT

Justin Verlander was done for the night, and for the first time all game, the New York Yankees looked threatening at the plate.

Mark Teixeira singled, and then Robinson Cano followed that lead for his 1st hit in 30 at-bats. Up stepped Raul Ibanez, who had already saved N.Y a couple times this postseason with dramatic home runs in the late innings.

”Usually when I’m out of the game like that, I head to the locker room and go thru my normal routine, but obviously I needed to stay for the last out there,” Verlander said. ”Made it a small stressful, so I ran up to the locker room and went thru my routine as quickly as I possibly could. Obviously I’m superstitious a little bit. So I watched the last out from up top on the TV.”

Reliever Phil Coke struck out Ibanez and the Tigers held on for a tense 2-1 victory over the New York Yankees, taking a 3-0 lead in the American League championship series. After halting New York’s rally in the 9th inning, the Tigers are a win away from their 2nd pennant in 7 years.

Detroit Tigers is in this position because of a starting beginning rotation that hasn’t needed much help from the bullpen or the offense. Football odds

”You see somebody go out there and have a great game, and you want to one-up that guy. He is your friend, I know, but it still gives you the urge to go out there and do better,” Verlander announced. ”I think that could be a great thing when it is possible to get your entire rotation doing that, and I think we’re starting to click at the right time.”

Seeking their 1st World Series title since 1984, the Tigers were on an historic pitching run even before their ace took the mound Tuesday. With the single exception of a 4-run 9th inning against Detroit closer Jose Valverde in Game One, N.Y had been shut out for the entire series.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi benched Alex Rodriguez and Nick Swisher for Game Three, although it was no use. Verlander allowed only a pair of singles by Ichiro Suzuki and a leadoff homer by Eduardo Nunez in the 9th. Delmon Young hit a solo home run for the Tigers, and Miguel Cabrera had an RBI double.

Nunez’s homer snapped a scoreless streak by Detroit starters of 30 1-3 innings. That sure is a record for a single postseason. The previous mark of 29 innings was set by Oakland in 1974.

N.Y sends C.C. Sabathia (15-6) to the mound in Game 4 and Detroit counters with Max Scherzer (16-7).

Verlander fell just short of a 2nd straight shutout after stopping the Athletics in the decisive 5th game of the division series. He struck out only 3, but kept N.Y off the scoreboard till the homer to left field by Nunez, the 1st run allowed by the powerful right-hander since he gave up a leadoff homer to Coco Crisp in Game 1 of the ALDS.
