Not even the fan with the most optimism about this Tigers team could see this coming. The Tigers can sweep the Yankees right out of the ALCS and move on to the World Series with a victory tonight.
The Tigers have dominated the Yankees with starting pitching, and tonight it’s Max Scherzer’s turn.
Scherzer has started only one game so far in the postseason, Game 3 against Oakland in the ALDS. He struck out eight and only gave up an unearned run in his 5 1/3 innings.
The task won’t be easy tonight for the Tigers, however, as the Yankees send their ace, C.C. Sabathia, to the mound to save their season.
Sabathia pitched a complete game in Game 5 of the Yankees ALDS match up with the Orioles.
First pitch is scheduled for just after 8:00 on TBS.
