DETROIT, June 3 (UPI) -- Brennan Boesch came home with the game-winning run on an Omir Santos sacrifice fly Saturday, lifting Detroit to a 4-3 win over the New York Yankees.

Boesch collected a one-out single off David Phelps (1-2) in the bottom of the ninth, went to third on Jhonny Peralta's hit and scored the game-winner on Santos' fly ball as the Tigers evened their three-game series with New York.

The Yankees had tied the score in top of the frame when Tigers closer Jose Valverde (3-1) issued a bases-loaded walk to Mark Teixeira.

Miguel Cabrera went 3-for-4 with two solo homers for Detroit.

Tigers starter Rick Porcello held New York to one run on six hits over six innings.

New York's Hiroki Kuroda also pitched well in a seven-inning no-decision, surrendering two runs on seven hits.

Raul Ibanez and Nick Swisher each supplied an RBI the Yankees' loss.
