Previewing Game 3 of the 2012 ALCS. The Tigers currently hold a 2-0 lead over the Yankees.

The New York Yankees will look to get back on track Tuesday night, as they travel to Detroit to take on the Tigers. The Yankees lost the first two games of the American League Championship Series, and many are blaming the offense which has averaged just 2.8 runs per game this postseason. Despite their struggles, manager Joe Girardi has often kept Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson and Nick Swisher in the lineup.

Start Time

First pitch from Comerica Park in Detroit is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET.

TV

TBS will broadcast the ALCS this October. Ernie Johnson will handle the play-by-play duties. John Smoltz and Ron Darling serve as the analysts, while Craig Sager reports from the field.

Radio

Radio can be found via ESPN Radio.

Pitching Probables

New York will hand the ball to Phil Hughes in Game 3. Hughes had a 16-13 record this year with a 4.23 ERA. Detroit counters with ace Justin Verlander, who was 17-8 this season with a strong 2.64 ERA.

Weather

Temperatures will be in the mid-50s around first pitch. The low on Tuesday night is 52 degrees. There is a 20 percent chance of showers throughout the evening.
