DETROIT — Alex Rodriguez hit third for the Yankees in the first three games of the postseason. A week later, New York has no use for the highest-paid player in baseball.
Game 4 of the American League Championship Series between the Yankees and Tigers was rained out at Comerica Park Wednesday night. The game will be made up Thursday afternoon, weather permitting, with the Tigers leading the series, three games to none. A fifth game, if needed, will be in Detroit Friday.
