The Yankees answered an early Francisco Lindor homer with two of their own in the first and eventually beat the Indians, 6-2.
Danny Salazar, who had a 1.48 ERA through his last seven starts, struggled from the outset, though he did settle enough to throw 4.2 innings and strike out five. The Indians fell victim to a umpire’s decision in the third, after which Terry Francona was ejected.
W: Luis Severino (1-2)
L: Danny Salazar (11-7)
HR: Lindor (6, 1st inning off Severino 0 on, 1 Out); Gardner (12, 1st inning off Salazar 1 on, 0 Out); McCann (22, 1st inning off Salazar 0 on, 1 Out)
