“I’m happy it’s over and I’m happy we won,” David Price said after the Tigers beat the Yankees, 4-3. “I finally feel a part of the team.”
David 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.
