What to Watch For:
1. A.J. Burnett will start his 9th career game against the Detroit Tigers. He is 4-2 with a not so impressive 6.33 ERA. In his last start at Comerica Park, he received the loss after giving up 5 runs (2 earned) on only 3 hits. The Tigers winning pitcher that day was Rick Porcello.
2. Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez has yet to record a hit in the postseason. He is 0 for 10 with 3 strikeouts. He is 1 for 4 against Porcello in his career.
3. Rick Porcello will be the youngest Detroit Tigers pitcher to start a postseason game in club history. Before tonight, Justin Verlander was the youngest back in 2006.
Hopefully an ALCS matchup.
