NEW YORK (AP) - After snapping the Detroit Tigers’ 12-game winning streak, the Yankees look to win consecutive games for the first time in almost a month Saturday in the Bronx.

Mariano Rivera blew a second save in as many games when Miguel Cabrera hit a tying two-run, two-out homer in the ninth Friday, but Brett Gardner’s single helped New York (58-56) end a four-game slide with a 4-3, 10-inning win.

“It was just one heck of a game, it really was,” Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. “Terrific game.”

Detroit (68-46) lost for the second time in 18 games but might have a good chance to bounce back against scheduled New York starter Phil Hughes (4-10, 4.87 ERA), who is 0-3 with a 6.08 ERA in his last five starts.
