Glendale, AZ (SportsNetwork. Andy Andreoff Jersey .com) - Karri Ramo made 26 saves to lead the Calgary Flames to a 3-0 shutout win of the Arizona Coyotes. Ramo was busiest in the second period when he had to make 15 stops, including having to shut down the Coyotes only attempt on the power play. T.J. Brodie scored the eventual game-winner 4:34 into the second period, and Johnny Gaudreau and Jiri Hudler added insurance tallies for the Flames in the third period. Hudler had a hand in all three Flames goals to help them win their sixth game out of their last eight. Devan Dubnyk made 26 saves on 29 shots in Arizonas third straight loss. In his second straight start for Calgary, Ramo shut out his opponent. Going back to Nov. 22 against New Jersey, he has a personal 1:34:34 shutout streak ongoing. Calgary opened the scoring at the 4:34 mark of the second period. On a 2- on-1 set up by a Gaudreau pass through the neutral zone, Hudler passed the puck past Keith Yandles stick, and Brodie fired a one-timer into the net. Gaudreau got a goal of his own a period later. Sharp passing from Mark Giordano and Hudler sent Gaudreau into the Arizona zone with speed, and his wrist shot whistled by Dubnyk to make it a 2-0 game. Calgary used a favorable bounce to record its third goal. Hudler knocked down the bouncing puck in the slot on a Flames power play, and his backhander beat Dubnyk to extend the Calgary lead to three. There were no first-period goals, but Calgary took advantage of a double-minor penalty to build momentum and end the first frame with a 13-3 shot advantage. Perhaps the best chance of the period was Gaudreaus breakaway a little more than seven minutes into the game. He broke in all alone on Dubnyk, and Dubnyk made the pad save along the ice as Gaudreau tried to deke and lift the puck past the goalie.

He did them all one better. Greene was lifted in the ninth inning after giving up only his fifth hit, then watched as closer David Robertson got pinch-hitter Miguel Cabrera to ground into a double play in New Yorks 1-0 victory over the Tigers on Thursday. "Starting pitchers, you see one guy do good, you see the next guy do good, you start to get on a roll," Greene said. Robertson relieved after Ian Kinsler led off with a single, and he walked Victor Martinez. Robertson came back to induce Cabrera to bounce into a double play and got Don Kelly to softly line out to shortstop with a runner on third for his 31st save and New Yorks fifth win in six games. "I had confidence he could get the job done," said Greene, who sat calmly in the dugout for the final three outs. Stephen Drews RBI ground-rule double was the only extra-base hit in a game dominated by Greene and fellow 25-year-old starter Rick Porcello. The Yankees took two of three in games started by the Tigers Cy Young winners with spectacular efforts from their rotation. New Yorks rookie followed up by pitching the best game of them all against the AL Central leaders. Greene (3-1) walked three and struck out five while pitching into the ninth inning for the first time in his career. Greene didnt permit a runner past second until Ezequiel Carrera advanced to third on Kinslers single in the sixth. The right-hander got out of it with his second double play. "To be able to continue to pound the strike zone with quality pitches. Thats impressive," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said of Greene. Overall, Yankees starters yielded three earned runs in 27 1-3 innings to the Tigers eight runs in 29 2-3 innings. Max Scherzer, David Price and Justin Verlander -- the last three AL Cy Young Award winners -- started the previous three games. "The pitching was outstanding, especially the staarting pitching," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. Dave Taylor Jersey. "Unfortunately, we didnt take advantage in three of the four starts." Porcello (13-6) gave up nine hits in seven innings and struck out five. The Yankees loaded the bases in the seventh but the New Jersey-born Porcello got Martin Prado to ground his 110th pitch to shortstop Andrew Romine. The Yankees provided Greene all the support he needed with two outs in the fourth. Carlos Beltran and Chase Headley singled before Drews drive bounced just inside the line in left field and hopped into the stands. TRAINERS ROOM Tigers: Right fielder Torii Hunters left hand was still swollen and he was unable to play for a second straight game. He was hit by a pitch Tuesday night. Yankees: First baseman Mark Teixeira didnt play, a day after getting stitches in his left pinkie after he was spiked while sliding home Wednesday night. Girardi said Teixeira is day to day. ... Ace Masahiro Tanaka played catch again. "Hes got to get built up to 120 feet," Girardi said of the step needed for Tanaka to throw a bullpen. "I think he was 60-90 today." UP NEXT Tigers: Anibal Sanchez (8-5) will start when Detroit opens a three-game series at Toronto on Friday. The Blue Jays swept a three-game series at Detroit in June. Yankees: Host Cleveland for three games starting Friday. RHP Esmil Rogers (1-0, 5.84), who has pitched well in two games for the Yankees since he was claimed off waivers from Toronto, starts for New York. SITTING STARS The Yankees and Tigers gave some of their biggest names a rest in the day game after the teams played the night before. Derek Jeter and Brian McCann were out of the starting lineup for New York. Cabrera and Eugenio Suarez were out for Detroit. Cabrera didnt start for just the second time this season. He was 1 for 10 in the four-game series. JUST VISITING Former manager Jim Leyland sat in the front row next to the Detroit dugout.
