Derek Jeter helped out his jittery new teammate, while Carlos Pena gave his new team something to get excited about.
Jeff Weaver gave up two three-run homers in his Yankees debut Sunday, but Jeter hit a two-run shot in the sixth inning to complete New York's 10-6 comeback win over the Toronto Blue Jays.
Weaver (7-8) gave up a double to Vernon Wells on his first pitch and a two-run homer to Carlos Delgado one out later to fall behind 3-0.
"You want to make sure that you're cool, calm and collected when you go out there but the crowd kind of takes that away from you," Weaver said of pitching in front of 46,922 at Yankee Stadium. "Once I get my feet on the ground, it's going to be a lot of fun."
Pena, meanwhile, drove in the winning run and went 3-for-4 in his first game for Detroit as the Tigers beat the Boston Red Sox 9-8, despite blowing four leads.
The first baseman was acquired from Oakland in the three-team trade that sent Weaver to the Yankees.
Tigers 9, Red Sox 8
The Tigers led 1-0, 4-2, 5-4 and 8-6, but the Red Sox came back every time, tying it at 8 on Brian Daubach's second homer of the game, a two-run shot in the sixth.
Rich Garces (0-1) walked the bases loaded in the eighth before Pena hit a hard grounder to the right of shortstop Nomar Garciaparra, who had no chance to make a play.
