Verlander finally serves one up ... to A-Rod

Not many hitters enjoy facing Justin Verlander.

A-Rod does.

The Yankees third baseman blasted his fourth home run of the season leading off the fourth to bring his team within 3-2 of Detroit.

A-Rod is now 2-for-2 with both Yankees RBIs.

It was also the 633rd homer of his career and 288th as a Yankee, passing Bernie Williams for sixth place on the team's all-time list.

It was the first homer Verlander has allowed all season.
