Yankees vs. Tigers: 5 Biggest Matchups in Game 3 of ALCS

The ALCS has been a house of horrors for the New York Yankees, and they could not have been dealt a tougher hand to come back from to try to win this series. They are down two games to none to the Detroit Tigers and must win three straight road games in Detroit to get it back to New York.

To make matters worse, they will have to win these games without their captain and starting shortstop Derek Jeter, who broke his ankle in Game 1 of the series. If that isn't bad enough, they have to face one of the best pitchers in the game today in Justin Verlander.

Even with all the potential obstacles the Yankees have, they are still the New York Yankees and are a talented, veteran team who will most likely bring their best stuff in Game 3 tonight. These are the five matchups to watch in tonight's game.
