Tigers go quietly in 11th, still 4-4

Jose Valverde sure knows how to keep a good party going. The former Tigers closer (just a guess) left the field ignominiously in the ninth, but at least he left with the game tied. Which means extra innings. All the extra innings.

In the bottom of the 10th, the Yankees had a good scoring chance when Curtis Granderson drew a one-out walk. Pinch-runner Brett Gardner stole second, putting the winning run in scoring position. Russell Martin flew out to center, though, and Derek Jeter popped out.

The Tigers went quietly in the top of the 11th inning, with an Alex Avila one-out single providing the only thing close to a rally. David Robertson struck out Austin Jackson and got Omar Infante to pop up and end the threat, such as it was.
