The Yankees' offense finally woke up as they battered Detroit 10-1 to force a Game 5 showdown Thursday at the Stadium. The surprise of the year was AJ Burnett allowing only one earned run while lasting almost six innings to earn the win. Kudos should go to Curtis Granderson, who made two enormous defensive plays to keep Detroit in check. Ivan Nova will face Doug Fister with an ALCS spot on the line Thursday in the Bronx.

The Red Bulls beat LA 2-0 on goals from Rodgers and Henry.
