Yankees vs Tigers: Full Series Breakdown, Analysis for ALCS Matchup

It'll be a rematch of last seasons ALDS series between the New York Yankees and the Detroit Tigers, only this time the stakes are higher and the winner moves on to the World Series.

It took both the Yankees and Tigers five games to eliminate their opponents and move on to the ALCS, but both teams will come in well matched and ready to provide a national audience with a hard fought contest to take on the best of the National League.

During the regular season, the Tigers and Yankees faced off ten times, with New York winning the season series 6-4.

Seven of those games were in Detroit, perhaps giving New York an advantage having more experience playing in Comerica Park than the Tigers have playing under the spotlight in Yankee Stadium.

Both teams used their aces in the deciding Game 5's of the ALDS rounds against the Oakland A's (Tigers) and Baltimore Orioles (Yankees), leading to a possible must-see Justin Verlander vs. CC Sabathia showdown in Game 4 and perhaps Game 7.

The ALCS will kick off Saturday at 8:00pm Eastern Time.

Here is the full schedule:

Game 1: Saturday, 10/13, 8:00PM: Detroit Tigers @ New York Yankees

Game 2: Sunday, 10/14, 4:00PM: Detroit Tigers @ New York Yankees
