One More to Go

The Detroit Tigers defeated the New York Yankees in game 3 of the ALCS to take a 3-0 series lead in a best of 7 championship round. In 8 1/3 innings, Tigers P Justin Verlander allowed one run on three hits. Meanwhile the Yankees had to go to their bullpen after P Phil Hughes left the game with a stiff back. LF/DH Delmon Young hit a solo shot for Detroit, while IF Eduardo Nunez did the same for New York. 3B Miguel Cabrera also had an RBI for the Tigers. With one more win Detroit will return to the World Series for the first time since 2006. But this postseason has taught fans one thing: No lead is safe.

Nationals and Reds First to 90

The Washington Nationals and the Cincinnati Reds became the first teams to reach 90 wins this season. For the Nats’, it was the first time they were able to achieve the honor first. For the Reds, the last time they won 90 games before anybody else was in 1976, when they became the only team to sweep the New York Yankees in the World Series.
