NEW YORK - Robinson Cano hit a grand slam and drove in six runs, rookie Ivan Nova pitched brilliantly into the ninth inning in an unusual relief appearance, and the New York Yankees shook off a 23-hour rain delay to beat the Detroit Tigers, 9-3, in their suspended playoff opener Saturday night. A day after rain wiped out aces Justin Verlander and CC Sabathia after only 11/2 innings, the game resumed in the bottom of the second. No national anthem, all Yankees. Cano barely missed a homer on his tiebreaking double in the fifth, and New York broke it open with a six-run sixth against Doug Fister.

April Fools' Day was Monday, right? New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano fired agent Scott Boras and signed with rapper Jay-Z's company Roc Nation on Tuesday. Cano is in the final year of a six-year, $57 million contract and reportedly declined a sizable extension in February. Yankees fan Jay-Z is planning to become a certified agent who will push athletes' crossover marketing interests. But will he shop Cano outside the Big Apple? Cano, 30, hit .313 with 33 home runs last season.

Orlando Cabrera and Bengie Molina both drove in two runs as the Los Angeles Angels came from behind last night to beat the New York Yankees, 5-3, and tie their best-of-five American League divisional series at one game each. In the seventh inning, Cabrera put the Angels in front for the first time in the series when he hit a single off Yankees starter Chien-Ming Wang that scored Steve Finley and Jeff DaVanon. An inning earlier, Molina's RBI single had scored Cabrera and pulled the Angels into a 2-2 tie. Molina later added a solo homer in the eighth off Al Leiter to pad the margin to 5-2, a run that took on added meaning when Jorge Posada homered in the top of the ninth.

Michael Gonzalez (0-1) walked Mark Teixeira and gave up a double to Alex Rodriguez to start the 10th.

DETROIT - Justin Verlander struck out 11 in eight gritty innings, and Jose Valverde stopped a Yankees rally for the second straight night, whiffing Derek Jeter with two on to close out the Detroit Tigers' 5-4 victory over New York last night. Delmon Young hit a tiebreaking homer in seventh off Rafael Soriano and the Tigers took a 2-1 lead in the best-of-five ALDS, pushing the Yankees to the brink of elimination. Verlander and Yankees ace CC Sabathia were back on the mound after their Game 1 matchup was halted early by bad weather Friday night after only 1 1/2 innings.

  The house that Ruth, er, Ty builds It was extreme makeover day at Yankee Stadium on Sunday. No, the Yankees weren't revamping their banged-up lineup. The reality TV show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition took to the field and surprised a New York family with the promise to rebuild its home. Host Ty Pennington introduced the Lutz family of East Setauket, N.Y., before the Yankees played the Mets. Shouting through a bullhorn, Pennington brought the Lutzes out of the stands to join him in front of the pitcher's mound.

IN OCTOBER, hockey great Gordie Howe was so debilitated by a stroke he wanted to die. "He was saying, 'Take me out back and shoot me,' " son Murray Howe told the Associated Press. "He was serious. It wasn't like a joke. I said, 'Dad, let's just see if we can help you first.' " Howe was 86 when he suffered the stroke, which caused slurred speech and loss of use of his right arm and leg. Murray, a diagnostic radiologist, and Howe's other three children, took the Hall of Famer to Mexico where he was injected with donor stem-cells.

The Seattle Mariners say they cannot confirm any details of a potential deal with free-agent second baseman Robinson Cano. The team said Friday morning it will announce if an agreement is "completed and finalized" with the Yankees star. The statement came in response to an ESPN report Friday morning that Cano and the Mariners had reached agreement on a $240 million, 10-year contract pending a physical. Cano's reported deal would be one of the largest in baseball history and a coup for a franchise that has gone a dozen years since making the postseason.

A NATIONAL baseball reporter said on Twitter that the Phillies were on the verge of acquiring a journeyman outfielder; general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said in person that they weren't; and so the national baseball reporter said on Twitter that he was retracting the aforementioned tweet. In other words, it was just another Thursday in July. With less a week to go before the July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline, the Phillies are sending signs that they are aware of their own mortality.

NEW YORK - Robinson Cano's all-star appearance did not last past the top of the first inning. Batting second for the American League in Tuesday's 84th All-Star Game at Citi Field, Cano was hit in the right quadriceps with the second pitch he saw. Mets righthander Matt Harvey hit the New York Yankees second baseman with a 96-m.p.h. fastball. Cano went to first after a brief delay but came out of the game following a strikeout in the next at-bat by Detroit's Miguel Cabrera. He was replaced by Boston's Dustin Pedroia.

The Home Run Derby rosters were (mostly) announced Monday, which means the annual all-star spectacle will be once again relevant for, oh, about a week. (Quick, name last year's winner - ha, made you look it up.) But until the first pitch of the Midsummer Classic is thrown, there will be cries of anguish, gnashing of teeth, and rending of garments throughout the land over heroes overlooked and left out. Start gnashing: National League captain, David Wright of the host Mets, chose the Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez (who leads the senior circuit with 24 homers)

NEW YORK - The injuries have added up while attendance has gone down for an aging, perennial playoff team that is no sure shot for the postseason this year. Sound familiar? While this could be a description of the Phillies, it also fits their famous neighbors 90 miles north, the New York Yankees. Who would have thought that as the July 31 trade deadline approaches both teams have the potential to be sellers? The fans of both teams aren't buying as many tickets as in the past, although interest remains high.

ANTONIO HARRIS lives on South Ringgold Street, little more than a mile from Citizens Bank Park, and his favorite sport is baseball. So, maybe he can tell some stories about brushes with famous Phillies. Securing an autograph from Ryan Howard. Being tossed a batting-practice ball by Roy Halladay. Dancing on top of the dugout with the Phillie Phanatic. Um, not quite. "My favorite team is the Yankees," Harris said. Yankees?! Seriously?! Should we end this story now?!
