Sounds the alarms, all hands on deck, the Yankees are sinking.
The Tigers pulled out a huge 5-4 win tonight. They now have two chances to close out the Yankees and advance to the ALCS.
Verlander and Sabathia both struggled tonight, but Verlander was ultimately able to go 8 innings whereas Sabathia only went 5 1/3.
Game MVP honors go to Ramon Santiago. Santiago had clutch hits early in the game to extend innings and score runs that ultimately made the difference. Delmon Young came up with the big homer, but Santiago put the Tigers in position for the homer to matter.
