DETROIT (WHTC) - The Detroit Tigers earned its 11th American League pennant on Thursday by defeating the visiting New York Yankees, 8-1. It completed a four-game sweep of the Bronx Bombers in the American League Championship Series, and it was the third time in seven years that the Bengals excused the Yanks from the post season. Max Scherzer and three relievers teamed on a two-hitter, striking out a combined total of 12, while Detroit's offense was powered by shortstop Jhonny Peralta, who stroked a pair of homers and drove in three runs. Miguel Cabrera added a two-run shot, Austin Jackson cracked a solo homer, and both Delmon Young and Avisail Garcia had RBI singles in the Tigers' 16-hit attack. The Bengals are now idle until beginning the World Series on Wednesday night in either St. Louis or San Francisco.
