Tigers Lose To Yankees 4-3

LARRY LAGE,AP Sports Writer

DETROIT (AP) — Mark Teixeira and Eric Chavez hit solo home runs on consecutive pitches in the eighth inning that put New York ahead, and the Yankees held on to beat the Detroit Tigers 4-3 Thursday.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi was ejected and threw his hat during a demonstrative argument with third base umpire Tim Welke after a fair-or-foul call in the fifth inning.

Rafael Soriano escaped a first-and-third, no-out jam in the ninth for his 27th save in 29 chances.
