Given the Bombers’ issues, winning this series against Detroit’s All-World guns is sort of like the Boy Scouts beating up a SWAT team.

Out of everyday players, Gardner has been the Yankees’ MVP in an unusual season.
Brett Gardner was the hero on Sunday as he blasted a walk-off homer as the Yankees topped the Tigers.
A-Rod connected on Justin Verlander’s second pitch of the second inning Sunday for his 648th career homer.

“Harvey was as advertised tonight,” Ventura said after the game. “He was as dominant as anyone they’ve seen. He’s (Justin) Verlander-like — he has velocity, movement and his presence is as good as advertised.”

Overall, the Tigers should be very satisfied with hanging onto Verlander for at least another five years. Although the price tag was high, he is a vital contributor to the team’s success.
