DETROIT (AP) — Robbie Grossman hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the 10th inning to give the Detroit Tigers a 3-2 victory over the New York Yankees.

The Yankees took the lead in the top of the inning when automatic runner Aaron Judge came home from third on a passed ball.

Justin Wilson retired the first two Detroit batters in the bottom half, but on a full count, Grossman sent a high drive that cleared the fence in left field. Rougned Odor homered and had four hits for the Yankees.

Bryan Garcia won in relief for Detroit.
