After Robinson Cano lead the New York Yankees to a win in Game 1, the Detroit Tigers bounced back today. Jose Valverde got into a little bit of trouble in the ninth inning, but managed to save a 5-3 win for the Tigers.
So the series now shifts to the Motor City tied at a game a piece. The teams had to deal with a rainy weekend in New York, and ironically, rain is in tomorrow's forecast for Detroit as well.
If a decisive Game 5 is necessary, it will be played at Yankee Stadium. Winning the next two games at home and ending the series on Tuesday would certainly be in the best interest of the Tigers.
Here are four reasons that I think the Tigers will win the ALDS in Detroit.
