Justin Verlander proved again in Game 3 why he is the reigning American League MVP and Cy Young Award winner.
The Tigers ace pitched into the ninth inning and allowed just a single run (in the ninth) on three hits.
So far in this series, the Yankees lineup has been no match for Detroit pitching, but the Yankees will send their ace to the mound in Game 4 to try to neutralize the Tigers offense and give themselves a chance to climb back into the series.
Several Yankee hitters will need to break out of their slumps against a very tough pitcher in Max Scherzer for this to happen, but Detroit has also shown that it can struggle in series-clinching opportunities.
It will be CC Sabathia on the hill tonight against Scherzer with a 4 p.m. (ET) start in Detroit.
Will the Tigers sweep the New York Yankees and advance to the World Series, or will the Yankees' bats awaken and push the series to Game 5?
