The Detroit Tigers are World Series bound for the second time in seven years by beating the New York Yankees 8-1 for a 4-game sweep of the AL championship series. Max Scherzer was smoking hot and the Tiger bats came through.

A four-run fourth inning with homeruns by Miguel Cabrera and Jhonny Peralta. Austin Jackson added a solo shot in the seventh and Peralta hit another homer in the eighth to make it 8-1.

Congratulations to the Detroit Tigers.
