DETROIT (CBS/AP) – Justin Verlander struck out 11 in eight gritty innings and Jose Valverde stopped a Yankees rally for the second straight night, whiffing Derek Jeter with two on to close out the Detroit Tigers’ 5-4 victory over New York on Monday.

Delmon Young hit a tiebreaking homer in seventh off Rafael Soriano and the Tigers took a 2-1 lead in the best-of-five American League playoff, pushing the Yankees to the brink of elimination.

Verlander and Yankees ace CC Sabathia were back on the mound after their Game 1 matchup was halted early by bad weather Friday night.

While Sabathia didn’t make it through the sixth Monday,

Verlander was still hitting 100 mph on the stadium radar gun in the eighth.

 Young graduated from Adolfo Camarillo High School in 2003.
