The Detroit Tigers relied on good starting pitching and some timely hitting to take the first two games of the American League Championship Series from the Yankees in New York. The Tigers now lead the best-of-seven series 2-0 and come home to Comerica Park for the next three games.  If the Tigers can win two of the three, they will earn a trip to the World Series for the first time since 2006.  The last time the Tigers won the World Series was 1984. The Tigers won Saturday night in 12 innings after closer Jose Valverde blew a 4-0 Tiger lead in the bottom of the ninth.  Solid relief from Octavio Dotel and Drew Smyly held off the Bronx Bombers after Valverde’s meltdown, while the Tigers scored twice in the 12th for a 6-4 win. Today’s victory came behind another strong outing from Anibal Sanchez and good relief from Phil Coke as the Tigers shut out New York 3-0.  Justin Verlander will start Tuesday night’s Game 3 against the Yankees’ C.C. Sabbathia.  8 p.m. first pitch on TBS.  For more details on the first two games, visit
