DETROIT (AP) There were times this year when Justin Verlander took the mound while his team was reeling a bit – and the right-hander’s presence was Detroit’s best shot at snapping out of a momentary funk.

Now, the hard-throwing ace is in a different situation. Led by Verlander, the Tigers’ rotation has been absolutely terrific this postseason, and his job is simply to keep this remarkable run going against the slumping New York Yankees.

“I think pitching, much like hitting, is contagious,” Verlander said. “Guys go out there night in and night out and see guys have a good game, and the next day he wants to have a good game, so on and so forth. And I think that’s what we are feeding on right now.”
