Detroit Tigers “Third Game”

October 17, 2012

When the Detroit Tigers held on for a (2-1) win vs the New York Yankees in game three of the ALCS, three was the operative number.

It was game three of course and the Tigers raised their Game three ALCS record to (6-0). The win gives the Tigers a commanding three games to none lead in a bid for their third ALCS triumph, one which would even their ALCS record at (3-3). Finally, if the Tigers win the series they would become the first team ever to win three consecutive post-season series vs the Yankees, having won division series vs them in 2006 and 2011.

Justin Verlander continued Detroit’s outstanding pitching going eight and one third innings, allowing just one run and three hits. Phil Coke pitched two thirds of an inning, allowing two hits, one to Robinson Cano, which snapped his 0 for 29 streak before striking out Raul Ibanez to end the game. For the third consecutive game, Delmon Young put Detroit ahead to stay this time with a solo home run in the fourth inning.
