(DETROIT, MI) (1660 THE FAN) - There's still one more step for the Tigers in their quest to be the best in baseball...but boy did Wednesday's win feel great. Max Scherzer pitched five solid innings, striking out 10 Yankees, and Detroit's hitters brought out the lumber, as the Tigers beat NY 8-1 on Wednesday, sweeping the Bronx Bombers 4-0 in the ALCS. MVP candidate Miguel Cabrera launched a 2-run shot in the 4th...Jhonny Peralta added his own 2-run homer later in the inning, and then hit a solo shot as an exclamation point in the 8th...and Delmon Young drove in the run that put Detroit ahead for good, which was the fourth time in as many games that Young had done that. Detroit knocked Yankees ace C.C. Sabathia out in that fourth inning uprising, as Sabathia gave up 11 hits and six runs, five of them earned. Now it's time to celebrate briefly, get rested and recover, and wait for either St. Louis or San Francisco. One thing is known...Detroit will start the 2012 World Series on the road, as the NL won the All-Star Game, and with that home field advantage.
