Tigers are Champs…Young named ALCS MVP!

Posted on October 19, 2012 in Professional Sports News, Sports News - Yooper & Michigan.

The Detroit Tigers are heading to the World Series.

The Tigers beat the New York Yankees 8-1 yesterdayt to sweep the American League Championship Series in four games.

Jhonny Peralta homered twice and Miguel Cabrera and Austin Jackson also went deep for Detroit, who out hit the Yankees 16-to-2 in the clincher.

Max Scherzer (SURE-zur) struck out ten over five-and-two-thirds innings of one-run ball for the win.

CC Sabathia gave up six runs in less than four innings to take the loss for New York.

It’s the eleventh American League pennant for the Tigers, who will face either the St. Louis Cardinals or San Francisco Giants in the World Series beginning next Wednesday.

Tigers outfielder/designated hitter Delmon Young has been named American League Championship Series Most Valuable Player.

Young knocked in the go-ahead run in all four games against the Yankees.

He hit .353 with two home runs, had six RBIs and scored three times in the series.

Young is the third Tigers player to be named ALCS MVP, with Kirk Gibson taking the honor in 1984 and Placido Polanco getting the award in 2006.
