One Night After Scoring 10 Runs Yankees Bats Silent In Loss

In a week where they faced Max Scherzer, David Price and Justin Verlander, Corey Kluber out-pitched all three former Cy Young Award winners. Kluber pitched six shutout innings, striking out 10 and got a couple of home runs in support as the Yankees fell to the Cleveland Indians 3-0.

In the second inning, Lonnie Chisenhall singled and Jose Ramirez would hit his first big league homer off Brandon McCarthy to make it 2-0. Michael Brantley would make it 3-0 in the eighth with 17th homer of the season off the right field foul pole off Chase Whitley.

The Yankees wouldn’t get their first hit until the fourth when Jacoby Ellsbury doubled. Chase Headley would walk, but Stephen Drew struck out to end the frame.

In the sixth, Derek Jeter got an infield single to pass Honus Wagner for sixth all time in hits with hit 3,431. Ellsbury would single too. But Carlos Beltran, Headley and Drew would all strike out.

Beltran and Headley would strike out again with two on in the eighth. All in all, the Yankees struck out 15 times, a season high.

Carlos Carrasco and Hiroki Kuroda will meet in the rubber game at 1:05 tomorrow afternoon
