Yankees 6, Tigers 1
In the fourth inning, Jason Giambi launched his 10th homer of the season. (Ed Betz/AP)
Andy Pettitte was sharp and got plenty of backing as the Yanks snapped a three-game slide and evened their series with the Tigers. Bobby Abreu's
bad-hop, two-out RBI base hit opened the Bombers' scoring in the third inning. Jason Giambi added two solo homers, and Andy Phillips doubled in two runs in the sixth.
