Yankees Use Two Five Run Innings To Beat Indians

The Yankees haven’t had many days where they put 10 runs on the board this year. They haven’t had many easy wins either. Even tonight wasn’t easy as the

The Indians actually fired the first blow in the first off Yankee starter Esmil Rogers. Jason Kipnis led off with a double and scored on Carlos Santana‘s single.

The Yankees then made Trevor Bauer really work hard in the first. Derek Jeter tied Honus Wagner for sixth all time in hits with a single. Jacoby Ellsbury walked. Carlos Beltran‘s single tied the game. Back to back walks to Brian McCann and Chase Headley brought in another. Stephen Drew and Martin Prado followed with singles to make it 5-1.

The Indians would make it 5-2 in the sixth when Michael Brantley and David Murphy doubled off David Huff.

Back came the Yanks in the bottom half.

Three walks set the stage for a grand slam by Beltran. Francisco Cervelli then hit for McCann who left with a mild concussion and doubled. After a hit by pitch, a Jose Ramirez error brought in the 10th run.

Shawn Kelley was handed the huge lead and struggled big time. Two singles and a walk loaded the bases. Brantley walked to bring in a run and end Kelley’s night.  In came Adam Warren who gave up a double to Santana and a sac fly to Murphy, but that’s all they’d get.

Corey Kluber will face Hiroki Kuroda on Paul O’Neill day at 1:05 tomorrow afternoon.
