Detroit Tigers win 11th American League pennant

The American League pennant in hand, the Detroit Tigers turn next to the World Series. They'll try to win one for the first time since 1984.
The AL has lost the last two Fall Classics. St. Louis won in 2011 and San Francisco in 2010, with each team defeating the Texas Rangers.
Coincidentally, it will be either the Cardinals or Giants who provide the Tigers' World Series opposition.
Detroit and St. Louis have met in three World Series. The Cardinals won in 1934 and 2006, the Tigers in 1968.
Detroit and San Francisco have never met in the post-season.
The Tigers swept the New York Yankees in the American League championship series, closing out an 8-1 record with relief pitcher Phil Coke on the mound.
Delmon Young was named the MVP of the ALCS.
