DETROIT -- Brad Ausmus saw the ball come off Brian McCanns bat and sail toward the foul pole in right field, a potentially devastating drive with the game tied in the ninth inning. Nike Roshe Leopard Print . "From where I was standing you could tell it was kind of hooking," said Ausmus, Detroits first-year manager. "Pretty quickly off the bat, I was pretty confident it was going foul." It ended up foul by a few feet, and Phil Coke went on to strike McCann out. Then the Tigers took advantage of the reprieve, scoring in the bottom of the ninth to beat the New York Yankees 3-2 on Thursday. Alex Avilas two-out single off the wall in right gave Detroit the victory. The Tigers, still chasing Kansas City for the AL Central lead, pulled even with Seattle in the race for the American Leagues second wild card. The Yankees are three games back. A day after David Price gave up nine straight hits, the Tigers sent Kyle Lobstein to the mound for his first major league start. The rookie performed well, allowing one earned run in six innings. Then Detroits bullpen held off New York until the Tigers scored in the ninth off Shawn Kelley (2-5). Victor Martinez led off with a double through a shifted infield, then Kelley walked J.D. Martinez before striking out Nick Castellanos and pinch-hitter Torii Hunter. Avila followed with a drive to right that Ichiro Suzuki couldnt quite get to. Kelley flung his glove to the ground as soon as Avila connected. "Thats about as bad as Ive felt walking off a mound in my career," Kelley said. "I got myself in a hole, but then I got the two outs I needed, and I had a chance to keep the team alive. But I hung a slider, and Alex Avila can hit that pitch. Most guys can hit that pitch." Coke (2-2) got one very eventful out for the win. Hiroki Kuroda allowed two runs and four hits in seven innings for New York, but hes still without a victory over the Tigers in his career. Hes beaten baseballs other 29 teams. Avila opened the scoring in the second with a sacrifice fly, then Jacoby Ellsbury tied it in the third with an RBI single. McCanns RBI groundout in the fourth put New York ahead, and Rajai Davis tied it with a run-scoring single in the fifth. CRUCIAL START With Anibal Sanchez still recovering from an injury -- and doubleheaders on the schedule last weekend and this weekend -- the Tigers have needed spot starts from some less familiar names. Robbie Ray and Buck Farmer both failed to get out of the second inning late last week, but Lobstein was solid, allowing only four hits and a walk. "Its a close race and theyre trying to win every game," he said. "I understood that, but at the same time, youve just got to go out there and treat it as any other day." Lobstein was optioned to Triple-A Toledo after the game. The Tigers purchased the contract of right-hander Evan Reed from the Mud Hens. Ausmus announced that LHP Kyle Ryan will make his major league debut Saturday when he starts as part of a doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox. OFFENSIVE WOES: Since that eight-run inning against Price, the Yankees have scored only two runs in 15 innings -- and that was against the unproven Lobstein and Detroits erratic bullpen.

He capped the week by making 32 saves and stopping 2-of-4 shootout attempts in a 2-1 win over the Minnesota Wild on Saturday. Nike Roshe Uk Cheap . That led me to go back and look at the years Halladay and Hamels were drafted. Oddly enough, they were both chosen 17th overall in the June draft; Halladay in 1995 and Hamels in 2002. The player drafted immediately ahead of Halladay was pitcher Joe Fontenot by the San Francisco Giants. He was later one of three prospects traded to the Marlins for closer Robb Nen, who went on to save 206 games over the next five years before calling it a career with 314 total saves.
