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