Tigers win, and now they have Verlander next

Posted on: October 2, 2011 6:43 pm
 
NEW YORK -- Bet the Tigers don't mind having Justin Verlander in Game 3 now.

I'm also thinking that the Yankees now won't throw Miguel Cabrera another strike in this series. Of course, I'm still wondering why they threw him a strike Sunday.

A lot changed in this American League Division Series Sunday, when the Tigers rode Cabrera, Max Scherzer and a shaky Jose Valverde ninth inning to a 5-3 Game 2 win over the Yankees.

The series is tied, at one win apiece. But now if the Yankees don't beat Verlander on Monday night in Detroit, their season rests in A.J. Burnett's unreliable hands in Game 4 Tuesday.

Sunday morning, the Tigers were the team with their season on the brink. They had lost just one game, but they'd gone through both Verlander and Doug Fister, their two most reliable starters this year.

They had no idea what to expect from the talented but erratic Scherzer, the sometimes-forgotten pitcher the Tigers got as part of the three-team Curtis Granderson-Austin Jackson-Ian Kennedy trade after 2009.

What they got from Scherzer on Sunday was 5 1/3 no-hit innings. What they got was six-plus innings and no runs.

Meanwhile, Freddy Garcia made the one mistake you absolutely can't make against the Tigers. He let Cabrera beat him.

With a runner on and two out in the first, he got far too much of the plate and gave up a two-run home run. With runners at first and third and one out in the sixth, he put another pitch on the plate and Cabrera's single made it 3-0.

While Cabrera was huge, Yankee cleanup hitter Alex Rodriguez is 0-for-8 in the series and is once again hearing boos at Yankee Stadium.

More shades of 2006, memories the Tigers will try to fan by having Kenny Rogers throw out the ceremonial first pitch before Verlander takes the mound Monday night at Comerica Park.

The similarities are there now, with rain, a Yankee win in Game 1 and a Tiger win in Game 2.

In '06, Rogers carried a shutout two outs into the eighth inning of Game 3, and the next day Joe Torre batted A-Rod eighth the day the Yankees were eliminated.

It's too early to say this is a repeat.

But Verlander is pitching Game 3.
