NEW YORK - Derek Jeter didn't want to leave.

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 night, Jeter said that he played his last game at the position. He said he would only serve as designated hitter in his final three games in Boston this weekend.

"I want to thank everyone here," Jeter said in a news conference shown on the center field video board, with many fans still in their seats. "I've said it time and time again ... Thank you guys."
