I’ll never forget where I was the day that news broke that Prince Fielder would be apart of the 2012 Detroit Tigers team. Since that moment I told everyone:
“The Detroit Tigers are going to the World Series and I am going to make sure I get to Detroit to see it.”
Now I sit here on October 18th, 2012 in tears having watched more of the story unfold.
“We’re going to the World Series kids!”
The Detroit Tigers finished their postseason run to get to the World Series today by sweeping the New York Yankees in four games winning 8-1.
Max Scherzer took the mound this afternoon and pitched a no hitter until the sixth when he gave up a triple to Eduardo Nunez and a follow-up double to Nick Swisher.
Those two hits by Nunez and Swisher would be the only two hits the Detroit Tigers pitching staff would give up in the last game of the American League Championship Series.
The Tigers offense put to shame the Yankees defensive and their pitching staff. The Yankees defense had two costly errors and the pitching staff gave up four home runs, one to Miguel Cabrera, one to Austin Jackson, and two to Jhonny Peralta.
After quite an interesting season on and off the field the Detroit Tigers Delmon Young won the American League Most Valuable Player award or the MVTree.
Detroit Tigers and their fans now wait to see who their next opponent will be. As of right now St. Louis has a 3-1 lead in the series against the San Francisco Giants.
Take some time to celebrate not only the Detroit Tigers tonight, but the City of Detroit.
