Tigers 9, Yankees 6

 Posada's two-run double
 Rodriguez's 43rd homer
The Yankees waited out four hours of rain just to start Friday's game, which featured Alex Rodriguez's 43rd home run and five innings of shutout relief. But the bullpen's stinginess ended in the 11th inning, when Sean Henn took his second extra-inning loss of the week, allowing a walk-off homer.
