The Detroit Tigers are one win away from clinching a spot in the 2012 World Series after a 2-1 win over the New York Yankees in Game 3 of the ALCS, but tickets will be hard to come by should they advance.

World Series tickets for three possible home games at Comerica Park went on sale Wednesday morning and were sold out within 20 minutes, according to Larry Lage of the Associated Press.

The Tigers are trying to advance to their second World Series since 2006 when they lost to the St. Louis Cardinals in five games.

Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer will attempt to help sweep the Yankees Wednesday at Comerica Park in Game 4 of the ALCS, with New York ace CC Sabathia trying to stave off elimination for the Yankees. The Tigers eliminated the Yankees in five games in the 2011 ALDS and in four games in the 2006 ALDS. The Yankees haven't been swept in a playoff series in 32 years.
