The Yankees Season Ends Early, Just Like Everybody Else in the AL East

The Tigers won. The Tigers won! The Tigers won!!! Oh, and they beat the Yankees. Led by Doug Fister, who threw 5 strong innings, allowing just 1 run to the strong-offensively Yankees. He was relieved by Max Scherzer, who allowed a run in 1 1/3 innings. Joaquin Benoit and Jose Valverde closed out the game in an eventual 3-2 win for Detroit. The Tigers' offense was lifted by back-to-back homers on back-to-back pitches by Don Kelly (a line drive to right) and Delmon Young (crushed to left). The essential 3rd run came on an RBI single by Victor Martinez (oh, how we miss him). Be sure to watch the ALCS tomorrow at a... time... I don't know when... The NLCS will be decided by who wins each game tonight!

  1. That was a nail-biter. The Yankees basically pulled out all the stops and brought in nearly every good pitcher they had to try to close the deal. But to no avail. The two homers Nova gave up right out of the gate set the tone for the game and cost the Yankees the rest of the post-season. Both teams played well, but the Tigers won fair and square.
