Tigers 4, Yankees 3, 12 innings

RECOMMENDED READING


NEW YORK — Former Rays ace David Price struck out 10 in his Tigers debut but was long gone when Alex Avila homered in the 12th inning to lift Detroit over the Yankees 4-3 Tuesday night.

Price pitched 82/3 innings and left with the score tied at 3.

The Tigers got Price from Tampa Bay on Thursday in a three-team deal minutes before the trading deadline. The lefty ace got to keep his No. 14; centerfielder Austin Jackson, who wore it with Detroit, was sent to the Mariners in the big swap.

Price leads the majors in strikeouts (199) and innings (1791/3). Joba Chamberlain relieved Price, and the crowd booed the former Yankees reliever.

The Yankees are in the midst of facing Detroit's three Cy Young Award winners. They edged Max Scherzer on Monday and will see Justin Verlander tonight.

Avila homered with one out off Matt Daley.

It was New York's 16th straight game decided by two runs or one. They're 9-7 in that span.

Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter left with a bruised left hand after being hit by a pitch from Dellin Betances in the ninth.
