Avila key in Tigers comeback win over Yankees

Bronx, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Alex Avila's solo home run in the top of the 12th inning put the Detroit Tigers ahead for good in a 4-3 come-from-behind decision over the New York Yankees.

Avila, who earlier came through with an RBI single that tied the contest in the seventh inning, belted an offering from Matt Daley (0-1) into the bleachers in right center to make David Price's first outing as a Tiger a victorious one, though the newly acquired hurler ultimately didn't factor in the final outcome.

Price made a strong initial impression, however, racking up 10 strikeouts while allowing three runs in 8 2/3 innings. Two of the eight hits the former Tampa Bay ace surrendered were solo homers by Brian McCann and Martin Prado.

Andrew Romine also had a solo homer to help the Tigers bounce back from a 2-1 setback in Monday's opener of this four-game set. Victor Martinez contributed two hits and an RBI to the triumph.

Prado and Jacoby Ellsbury each finished 2-for-5 with an RBI for New York, which had a three-game winning streak halted. Hiroki Kuroda matched Price through the first seven innings, yielding three runs on six hits.
