Earlier today, the Detroit Tigers punched their ticket to the 2012 World Series by winning Game 4 of the ALCS 8-1 and completing a four-game sweep of the New York Yankees. The Tigers pitching has been pretty close to perfection. They held the entire Yankee lineup to a microscopic 0.157 batting average, which led to only six runs over the entire series.
Delmon Young was named 2012 ALCS MVP. He had a 0.353 batting average, two home runs, six RBI and scored three runs.
This marks the eleventh time the Detroit Tigers have made it to the World Series. They have won four World Series Championships, with the last one coming in 1984.
The Tigers await the winner of the 2012 NLCS between the St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants.
