Tigers Beat Yankees In Ninth, 4-3

DETROIT — Miguel Cabrera hit two prodigious homers and Omir Santos’ sacrifice fly in the ninth inning gave the Detroit Tigers a wild 4-3 victory over the New York Yankees on Saturday night.

Detroit overcame a blown save by Jose Valverde (3-1) and an awful night of defense from Santos, a third-string catcher pressed into duty because of injuries. Santos made two errors and allowed five stolen bases — but his fly to right off Boone Logan with the bases loaded in the ninth was deep enough to score Brennan Boesch.

David Phelps (1-2) took the loss.

Valverde hit two batters with pitches and walked two in the ninth, allowing New York to tie it after Cabrera’s homer onto a camera platform gave Detroit a 3-2 lead.
