Recap

Yankees 7, Tigers 6: Derek Jeter scored on a passed ball in the ninth inning as New York overcame a pair of two-run deficits to rally past visiting Detroit.

Alex Rodriguez collected three hits - including a solo homer off Justin Verlander in the fourth inning - and Russell Martin belted a two-run shot for the Yankees, who snapped a modest two-game losing skid.

Jeter, who saw his 15-game hitting streak come to an end, walked in the ninth inning and advanced to third on a wild pitch from Brayan Villarreal (0-1). The hard-throwing pitcher then uncorked another pitch which went awry - and Jeter scampered home with the winning run.

Mariano Rivera (1-1) retired the side in the ninth to pick up the victory.

Austin Jackson recorded four hits - including a two-run double in the sixth inning - and Miguel Cabrera recorded his 1,000th career RBI.

Prince Fielder had two RBI singles and Brad Eldred added a run-scoring triple for the Tigers.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Delmon Young apologized following his arrest on a hate crime harassment charge. According to police, Young engaged in a fight with a group of men outside the team's hotel and yelled anti-Semitic epithets. Young was held out of the lineup on Friday. ... Cabrera's run-scoring single in the third accounted for his 1,000th career RBI. He was the sixth youngest player to reach the milestone. ... The Yankees mourned the passing of Bill "Moose" Skowron, who died earlier on Friday of congestive heart failure. He was 81.
