The Detroit Tigers advanced to the World Series with an 8-1 victory over the Yankees in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series.
The Yankees, who never had a lead in any of the four games in this series, continued to struggle at the plate in Game 4, with just two hits.
C.C. Sabathia pitched poorly as well, unable to get out of the fourth inning and allowing 11 hits and six runs. Max Scherzer countered with a very strong performance, striking out 10 in five and two-thirds innings.
The Tigers hit four home runs, two by the short stop Jhonny Peralta, which was more than enough to advance to the World Series, where they will play either the San Francisco Giants or the St. Louis Cardinals.
The Yankees had the best record in the American League this year, but their bats went silent at the worst time and they now face a long winter full of question marks.
How would you fix the Yankees? Do they need to be fixed? You have all winter to debate this, why not start now.
