Tribe Wins on Brantley Walk Off in 16th; Indians 5, Yankees 4

The Indians won on Michael Brantley walkoff single in the 16th inning on Tuesday night, the club’s third straight win.

Jose Ramirez and Francisco Lindor each singled, the third hit of each’s night. Brantley then roped a single to right, scoring Ramirez and setting off a wild celebration in left field.

The Indians led, 2-0, through five, on RBI singles by Carlos Santana and Ramirez. Carlos Carrasco extended his scoreless innings streak to 22 by keeping the Yankees off the board through five, but New York tallied runs in the sixth and eighth before Chase Headley had a two-run single in the 10th.

Cleveland, though, rallied quickly in the bottom half: Lindor singled, Brantley doubled, Santana had a sac fly and Yan Gomes drove in Brantley to tie it at 4.

W: Austin Adams (2-0)

L: Branden Pinder (0-2)

HR: Stephen Drew (14, 6th inning off Carrasco 0 on, 0 Out); Carlos Beltrán (10, 8th inning off Carrasco 0 on, 0 Out)
