Delmon gives Tigers lead in 12th, Jeter injures leg

Less than an hour after Raul Ibañez gave the hometown crowd a serious case of the warm fuzzies, everything turned awful for the New York Yankees.

Miguel Cabrera took a leadoff walk in the top of the 12th, and he moved to second on a Prince Fielder ground out. Delmon Young -- already 2-for-5 with two RBIs coming into the at-bat -- rapped his third hit of the night, a line-drive double under the glove of Nick Swisher to score Cabrera from second.


Giving up the lead was the least of the Yankees' worries, though. Jhonny Peralta sent a routine grounder up the middle in the next at-bat, and Derek Jeter did ... something:


Something awful. Jeter couldn't put any weight on his right leg as he came off the field. If he plays in another game this postseason, it will be some Willis Reed ****, for sure.

The Tigers weren't done, as Andy Dirks hit an infield single to give the Tigers a 6-4 lead. Right now, though, the story of this game -- which already had a number of compelling stories -- is Jeter's injury.
