Tigers 3, Yankees 2

DETROIT — Alex Avila hit an RBI single off the rightfield wall with two outs in the ninth, lifting the Tigers. A day after former Rays ace David Price gave up nine straight hits, Detroit sent Kyle Lobstein — a former Tampa Bay farmhand — to the mound for his first major-league start. The rookie performed well in six innings. The bullpen held on until the Tigers scored in the ninth off Shawn Kelley, putting runners on first and second before Avila's drive.
