NEW YORK (AP) — Derek Jeter made sure he went out a winner in his final game at Yankee Stadium, delivering a walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth to give the New York Yankees a 6-5 victory over Baltimore. Yankees players rushed out to engulf him as former teammates such as Jorge Posada, Mariano Rivera, Bernie Williams, Andy Pettitte, Tino Martinez and Hall of Fame manager Joe Torre lined up near the New York dugout waiting to greet Jeter. He was 2-for-5 with three RBIs and a run scored, giving him a .353 over eight games in his final homestand in the Bronx.

CINCINNATI (AP) — The San Francisco Giants clinched a National League wild-card berth when the Milwaukee Brewers committed three errors in a 5-3 loss to Cincinnati. The Reds scored a pair of unearned runs to go ahead 3-2 in the fifth, one inning before Brandon Phillips smacked a two-run homer to put them ahead 5-2. The Brewers were a season-high 19 games over .500 on June 28, when they led the National League Central by 6 ½ games over St. Louis.

UNDATED (AP) — Victor Martinez hit a two-run homer and Miguel Cabrera added a solo shot as Detroit doubled up Minnesota 4-2 to move closer to clinching the AL Central crown. Max Scherzer allowed two runs and five hits while striking out nine in six innings to earn his 18th win. The Tigers remain two games ahead of the Kansas City Royals, who reduced their magic number to one for clinching their first playoff berth in 29 years by downing the White Sox 6-3 in Chicago.

UNDATED (AP) — The Pittsburgh Pirates enter the final weekend of the season just one game behind the NL Central-leading St. Louis Cardinals. Andrew McCutchen had three RBIs and scored twice as the Pirates clobbered the Braves 10-1 in Atlanta. Travis Snider and Neil Walker homered to back Edinson Volquez, who struck out 10 while yielding just four hits in seven shutout innings.

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Larry Donnell grabbed three short touchdown passes while the New York Giants were building a 24-7 halftime lead in a 45-14 rout of Washington. Eli Manning was 28 of 39 for 300 yards, four touchdowns and one interception as the Giants improved to 2-2 while dropping Washington to 1-3. New York's defense picked off Kirk Cousins four times, forced six turnovers and was on the field for just 23 minutes.
