Then there were four, but not after an incredible Division Series which saw each series go the full five games.
Both the Tigers and Yankees had to use their aces in Game 5, with Detroit in a bit better shape because they had an off day between series. So in theory Justin Verlander should be able to pitch Game 3 and Game 7. That's probably not the case for New York, because Sabathia would have to pitch Game 3 on just three days' rest.
The Giants will try to win their first home game of the playoffs; usually a club that goes 0-for-the series at home doesn't advance, especially in San Francisco's case, as they had to win three straight on the road to pull off the Division Series victory.
