Jeter hurt, Young stars as Tigers win ALCS opener
NEW YORK – The New York Yankees lost the AL championship series opener and their captain when Derek Jeter broke his left ankle just after Delmon Young doubled home the go-ahead run in the 12th inning of the Detroit Tigers' thrilling, excruciating, bizarre 6-4 victory Saturday night.
New York's Raul Ibanez hit another stunning game-tying home run during a four-run rally in the ninth, but that was just the start of the dramatics in another thriller of a postseason already filled with them.
Jeter rolled when he dove in an attempt to glove Jhonny Peralta's grounder up the middle in the 12th. Unable to move, he flipped the ball toward the mound. His leg was dangling as he was assisted to the dugout by manager Joe Girardi and trainer Steve Donahue.
