Here are three stars from the Detroit Tigers following their 7-3 win over the Houston Astros in 14 innings on Thursday:

Don Kelly has had some clutch moments in his brief career in Detroit. He added another Thursday with a go-ahead RBI single -- the centerpiece to a four-run 14th inning. Kelly, who came on to pinch-run for Victor Martinez in the eighth, struck out in his first at-bat in the 11th, but rebounded nicely in the 13th with a leadoff double. He was stranded at third, only to set him up for a dramatic run-scoring single in the 14th when he turned on a cutter and sent a grounder through the infield gap to score Austin Jackson. He finished 2-for-3 and watched his average climb from .192 to .241.

The Tigers' bullpen was absolutely terrific Thursday as four relievers combined to throw seven shutout innings. Jose Ortega, Joaquin Benoit, Darin Downs -- they're all deserving of a star, but it was Luke Putkonen who shut the final door on Houston after the Tigers took a four-run lead in the 14th. Making his season debut, Putkonen -- called up from Triple-A Toledo on Thursday -- worked 2 1/3 scoreless innings and struck out four, including his last two batters to preserve a 7-3 win en route to his first career victory.
