NEW YORK -- David Price gave his new team a chance to win. Later, his catcher delivered the deciding stroke. Price struck out 10 in his Detroit debut and was long gone when Alex Avila homered in the 12th inning to lift the Tigers over the New York Yankees 4-3 Tuesday night. "Happy its over and happy we won," Price said. "Finally feel part of the team." Price pitched 8 2-3 innings and left with the score 3-all. The AL Central leaders got Price from Tampa Bay last Thursday in a three-team deal minutes before the trading deadline. The lefty ace got to keep his No. 14 -- centre fielder Austin Jackson, who wore it with the Tigers, was sent to Seattle in the big swap. Price leads the majors in strikeouts (199) and innings (179 1-3). "He really looked exactly like he did in Tampa, except he had the Tiger uniform," manager Brad Ausmus said. Bushy bearded Joba Chamberlain relieved Price, and the crowd booed the formerly clean-shaven Yankees reliever. "I was a little worried about him being amped up, being in New York," Ausmus said. Chamberlain got four outs without permitting a hit. "I didnt know what to expect," he said. "I definitely had to take a couple of deep breaths." The Yankees are in the midst of facing Detroits three Cy Young Award winners. They edged Max Scherzer on Monday, and will next see Justin Verlander on Wednesday night. Avila homered with one out off Matt Daley (0-1). Joakim Soria (2-4) got the win. Joe Nathan earned his 23rd save in 28 tries, retiring Chase Headley on a leadoff drive that was caught at the right-field wall. "Two strikes, you know, youre not taking a full-blown normal swing. But, yeah, I felt I got enough of it that it had a chance. Unfortunately, it came up just short," Headley said. This was the Yankees 16th straight game decided by two or fewer runs, and theyre 9-7 in that span. Its the longest such streak in the majors since a 16-game stretch by Baltimore in 1975, the team said in citing the Elias Sports Bureau. Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter exited with a bruised left hand after being hit by a pitch from Dellin Betances in the ninth. Hunter was listed as day-to-day. "You always think the worst," he said, his hand bandaged. "I thought it was broke." Brian McCann and Martin Prado hit solo home runs for the Yankees, who had won three in a row. The Tigers tied it at 3 in the seventh, helped by some smart swinging by Victor Martinez. The cleanup man led off by hitting an easy grounder to the uncovered left side of the Yankees overshifted infield for a single and scored on a two-out single by Avila. Andrew Romine homered in the Detroit sixth. TRAINERS ROOM Tigers: Shortstop Eugenio Suarez didnt play, a day after spraining his left knee while sliding into second base on a steal. Ausmus said theres a chance Suarez could play Wednesday. Yankees: First baseman Mark Teixeira went 0 for 5. He was a late scratch Monday when felt lightheaded. ... Left-hander CC Sabathia says doctors took out a bone chip they found in his knee when they did season-ending surgery last week. Hell soon get a stem-cell injection. He expects to ready for spring training. ON DECK Verlander (10-9, 4.66 ERA) starts against Chris Capuano (1-2, 4.50 ERA). Verlander is 0-2 in five regular-season starts at the new Yankee Stadium. No telling if his special fan will be in the stands -- Verlander flipped a ball to supermodel Kate Upton on Monday night, but she wasnt sitting in her seat behind the Tigers dugout Tuesday. JOBA THE BEARD Yankees manager Joe Girardi got a good look at Chamberlain, saying, "his beard is quite large." Girardi said he asked if Chamberlain ever found anything hidden in the bushy growth and the pitcher told him: "Sometimes, guys try to sneak seeds in there." SPIKED With a runner on second and one out in the seventh, Brendan Ryan hit a soft liner that Kinsler caught. Kinsler pivoted and tried to throw to second for a double play, but slipped and tossed the ball straight into the ground. Fortunately for the Tigers, it went right to first baseman Miguel Cabrera.

Speaking on TSN Radio 1050s TSN Drive with Dave Naylor on Monday, Colangelo said he had no intention of tanking the shortened 2011-12 season, but definitely wanted a high pick in the draft. "I wish that word wasnt used for headline reasons," said Colangelo, "but the story behind it was: how can we fix the system? How can we tweak the system to make it less likely that teams are rewarded for losing records? "I do believe that if youre as transparent as we were at the time - with our season seat holders, our fans, the market place and the media - everybody knew what the plan was and what we were going through. Buffalo Bills safety Jairus Byrd has given himself more than enough time to be ready for the start of the regular season after signing his one-year, $6.9 million franchise tender Tuesday night. The signing comes after the two-time Pro Bowler missed all of the teams off-season workouts, and nearly all of training camp. Buffalo will hold its final practice in suburban Rochester on Wednesday afternoon before returning to its headquarters in Orchard Park, N.Y. A person familiar with Byrds plans told The Associated Press that the player is not in the Buffalo area and intends to join the team within the next couple of days. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the Bills have only announced that Byrd has signed. The person added Byrds decision to sign the tender came without any assurances from the team that it wont apply the tag again next off-season. The Bills have the option to do that once more to prevent Byrd from testing free agency. Bills president Russ Brandon has only said the team will continue its attempt to sign Byrd to a long-term contract once it is allowed to after the season. The two sides failed to reach an extended deal before a July 15 deadline. The timing of Byrds signing should not come as a surprise. The move was made to give Byrd enough time to assure him of collecting his entire salary. Had he waited another week, the Bills -- under NFL rules -- could have been put in a position to ask the league for a one- or two-week roster exemption, during which time Byrd would not have been paid. That option is now off the table, with Byrd having two weeks to prepare for the Bills opener against New England on Sept. 8. Byrd, a second-round pick out of Oregon in 2009, has 18 career innterceptions -- tied for the NFLs third-highest total since 2009.dddddddddddd Byrd is expected to be a focal point of the teams new scheme under defensive co-ordinator Mike Pettine. Speed and versatility have been the foundation of Buffalos defence and the team has used a variety of pressure packages this preseason. That approach would appear to play to Byrds strengths by creating opportunities for him in the secondary. Byrd is not expected to play in Buffalos third preseason game Saturday against Washington and its uncertain if he will be ready to play in the teams preseason finale Aug. 29. Earlier on Tuesday, general manager Doug Whaley said Byrd will have some work to do to learn the new system. "A lot of its just installation and the mental part of it," Whaley said. "Its a new system, its an intricate system and safeties do make a lot of calls so hes missed that. ... So hes going to have some ground to make up but hes a professional. I know hell come in here ready to work and try to contribute as much as possible." When Byrd returns, its expected that he will replace third-year pro DaNorris Searcy in the secondary. Former cornerback Aaron Williams has impressed since making the switch from corner to safety this off-season and is listed as the teams top strong safety on the depth chart. Byrd is Buffalos top free safety. Byrd was Buffalos most consistent defender in 2012 and was added to the Pro Bowl roster as an injury replacement. He led the Bills with five interceptions and four forced fumbles and finished fourth on the team with 76 tackles. The three players ahead of him on that list -- George Wilson, Nick Barnett and Kelvin Sheppard -- are no longer with the team.
