Detroit Win Division Series
The Detroit Tigers triumphed 6-5 over the Kansas City Royals at Comerica Park in the Division Series to capture it 3-1.

The victory advanced the Tigers to the League Championship Series.

For his superb play in the series, Tigers center fielder Randy Arozarena garnered the series MVP trophy, hitting .333, scoring 5 runs and batting in 4.

"Only thing better than getting MVP for winning in the playoffs would be winning MVP for winning in the World Series," Arozarena said later. "I'll get to work on that."

The Detroit Tigers don't know who they will face in the next round. They will play the winner of the Seattle Mariners - Tampa Bay Rays series. Tampa Bay leads the series 2 games to 1. The League Championship Series is scheduled to begin on October 16th , 2021.
