Detroit defeats New York 3-2, advance to ALCS against Rangers
Jose Valverde struck out Alex Rodriguez to conclude what has been a tense ALDS. Detroit won 3-2 after scoring back to back homers in the first inning and holding on to beat all six Yankee pitchers. Verlander did not pitch today which makes him the starting pitcher for the first game of the ALCS against the Rangers' CJ Wilson. The game concluded the New York Yankees' season, which ended in boos towards A-Rod and disappointment towards what appeared as a solid AL East team.
