 NEW YORK (AP) -Roger Clemens won in his return from a suspension and Bobby Abreu hit a go-ahead homer that clanked off the foul pole, carrying the New York Yankees to a 5-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday.
Clemens gave up Cameron Maybin's first major league homer but pitched out of trouble for six innings, striking out eight to match his season high. Jorge Posada also homered and finished with three hits for the Yankees, who took control by scoring four times in the sixth.
Mariano Rivera tossed a hitless ninth for his 20th save in 23 chances.
Clemens (5-5) gave up 10 hits, his most since allowing 11 on Sept. 19, 2005, with Houston at Pittsburgh, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. He was working on 10 days' rest after serving a five-game suspension for hitting Toronto's Alex Rios with a pitch on Aug. 7.
Posada hit a solo shot off Chad Durbin (7-6) in the second, putting New York ahead.
Orioles 5, Blue Jays 3
TORONTO (AP) - J.R. House homered to help Baltimore's Steve Trachsel win for the first time in 10 starts.
Trachsel (6-7) allowed three runs and eight hits in 6 2-3 innings and won for the first time since June 8.
Right-hander Jim Hoey relieved Trachsel after a pair of two-out singles in the seventh and got Toronto pinch-hitter Vernon Wells to ground into an inning-ending fielder's choice.
Hoey pitched around a double in the eighth, and Danys Baez pitched a perfect ninth for his second save.
For the second straight start, Toronto right-hander Jesse Litsch was the victim of poor defense. The Blue Jays made two errors, leading to three unearned runs. Toronto made three errors and allowed three unearned runs in Litsch's loss to Kansas City on Monday.
On Saturday, Litsch (4-6) allowed two earned runs on six hits in six innings. He walked one and struck out four.
