Miguel Cabrera and Jhonny Peralta hit two-run homers in a four-run fourth inning against CC Sabathia, who was unable to prevent the Yankees from getting swept in a postseason series for the first time in 32 years.
Scherzer took a no-hit bid into the sixth against a New York starting lineup that was again without Alex Rodriguez, who flied out with two on in the sixth as a pinch hitter.
Austin Jackson added a solo shot in the seventh for Detroit, and Peralta hit another homer an inning later to make it 8-1.
Detroit Tigers designated hitter Delmon Young has been selected MVP of the AL championship series.
Young batted .353 with two homers and six RBIs in a four-game sweep of the New York Yankees, capping his big series Thursday with a run-scoring single in the first inning to send Detroit on its way to an 8-1 rout in Game 4.
Young became the first player with four game-winning RBIs in one postseason series, according to STATS LLC.
The top pick in the 2003 amateur draft, Young developed a reputation for having a volatile temper early in his career. He had an uneven 2012 regular season on the field and was arrested in New York in April on a hate-crime harassment charge.
