The Detroit Tigers have pushed the New York Yankees to the brink of elimination in the ALCS after Justin Verlander‘s pitching jewel on Tuesday night. Taking a shutout into the ninth inning, Verlander and the Tigers left Game 3 with a 2-1 victory, putting them up 3-0 in the best of 7 series.

His final stat line looked like this: 8.1 IP, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 SO, 1 HR.

Although he was pulled in the top of the 9th, Verlander was 3 outs away from becoming the first pitcher in 24 years to throw consecutive shutouts in the postseason.

Phil Coke came in to close the Yankees and earn the save.

Other key performers for Detroit included Miguel Cabrera and Delmon Young, who each finished with 1 hit, 1 RBI, and 1 BB.

New York will try to avoid the sweep tomorrow night in Game 4. First pitch from Detroit is set for 7:07.
