Boone Logan replaced Phil Hughes with one out in the fourth after Hughes had faced just six hitters.

Logan was brought in to face lefty Alex Avila, who was hitless in 13 ALDS at-bats to that point. Avila singled through the right side. Logan then induced a flyout to right from Jhonny Peralta and struck out Ramon Santiago.

Officially, that three pitchers used in the first four innings by Joe Girardi.

Logan's early appearance suggests that we will see CC Sabathia out of the bullpen at some point in Game 5. Sabathia was warming up in the bottom of the fourth. It's 2-0 Tigers going into the bottom of the fourth frame.
