Game 3 of the ALCS is scheduled for Tuesday, October 16, 2012 at 8 PM ET as the New York Yankees travel to take on the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park in Detroit, Michigan. The Yankees are asking Phil Hughes to secure a much-needed win while the Tigers send Justin Verlander to the mound after throwing a complete game shutout against the A’s to clinch the division series. Verlander will be too much for the Yankees offense in this one, with Detroit taking a 3-0 lead in the series.
Detroit Tigers: A win brings them one game closer to Fall Classic
Justin Verlander pitched like the world was on fire in his two starts in the ALDS against the Oakland A’s, winning both games one and five. He set a new record for strikeouts in a division series with 22 in his two starts. Last year against the Yankees in the ALDS, Verlander recorded 11 strikeouts in eight innings of his game three start. In a start this August against New York, he recorded 14 strikeouts in eight innings of work. Verlander should be chomping at the bit to face a struggling offense such as the Yankees with the chance to put his team up 3-0.
New York Yankees: The offense needs to improve right now to save season
If New York wishes to have a shot at even thinking about a comeback, winning game three is incredibly vital. The Bronx Bombers, and we use that term loosely, need to take game three as an elimination game. Phil Hughes gets the call on regular rest after a stellar outing against the Orioles in the ALDS. Hughes took a no decision after allowing one run over 6.2 innings pitched against Baltimore. In the ALDS against the Tigers in 2011, Hughes threw 2.1 scoreless innings of relief and is tasked with getting the Yanks back into the series.
As game three of the ALCS rolls around, many fans in New York wondering if they saw the last of their beloved Yankees after the team lost the first two games of the series. Things do not bode well for them as the Tigers send Justin Verlander to the hill tonight looking for a 3-0 lead. The online sportsbook of WilliamHill.com has the Tigers at -1.5 (+120) home chalk over the visiting Yankees. With the roll Detroit is on right now (three straight wins), put your money down on the Tigers to climb one game closer to the World Series tonight.
