Tigers 4, Yankees 3
Carlos Guillen rounds third after his game-tying solo homer. (Julie Jacobson/AP)
Trailing 3-1, the Tigers used a sac fly, a homer and a run-scoring triple to pull out a win and a split of their trip to Yankee Stadium. Curtis Granderson's three-bagger put Detroit in front, and the bullpen tossed 3 2/3 one-hit innings to ground the Yankees.
