Alex Avila delivered a game-winning double with two outs in the bottom of the ninth Thursday as the Tigers edged the Yankees 3-2.
Avila also had a sac fly earlier in the game. The double to right came on a first-pitch slider from Shawn Kelley after Kelley struck out two in a row to nearly get himself out of a jam. The Tigers ended up winning two out of three in the series to move into a tie with the Mariners for the second wild card spot in the AL. They're both 72-60, while the Yankees are three games back at 69-63. Aug 28 - 5:11 PM
