The Detroit Tigers have shut down the New York Yankees so far in the AL championship series - and Justin Verlander hasn't thrown a single pitch.

That changes Tuesday night when the Detroit ace takes the mound for Game 3. The Tigers won the first two games in New York, and the only runs the Yankees scored came in a four-run ninth inning against reliever Jose Valverde in the opener.

New York must now regroup - without injured shortstop Derek Jeter - and snap out of its funk before it's too late. Phil Hughes takes the ball for the Yankees against Verlander, the reigning American League MVP who went 2-0 in the division series versus Oakland.
