NEW YORK, N.Y. - Derek Jeter didn't want the night to end.

The retiring captain gave New York one more win with a big hit, then took two trips out to shortstop, waving to the adoring crowd each time following his final home game at Yankee Stadium.

Soon after his game-winning single in the ninth inning sent the Yankees over Baltimore 6-5 Thursday, Jeter said he played his last game at the position. He would only serve as designated hitter in his final three games in Boston this weekend.
