- In Game 1, outfielder Delmon Young hit his sixth career postseason homer for the Tigers, the most in franchise history.
- Also in Game 1, the Tigers notched their third straight game with 10-plus opponent strikeouts, setting a franchise record. They extended that streak to four games in Game 2.
- In Game 2, Young moved to third on Detroit's all-time postseason RBI list with 12. Later in the game, Cabrera tied him on that list.
- Cabrera also tied another club record in Game 2. It was his 18th straight postseason game in which he reached base safely, bringing him to atop the franchise list alongside Hank Greenberg.
Young, Cabrera and the Tigers will all have a chance to further those records on Tuesday when Detroit hosts the Yankees in Game 3.
