Tribe Four Game Win Streak Snapped by Yanks; Yankees 8, Indians 6

The Indians four-game win streak ended Thursday in an 8-6 loss to the Yankees; the Tribe ended a six-game homestand 4-2 with series wins over New York and Minnesota.

The Yankees struck quickly against Tribe starter Trevor Bauer, as Brian McCann hit a three-run homer in the first and Stephen Drew followed with a solo shot in the second. The Indians got two back in the third, on a Michael Brantley sac fly and Carlos Santana RBI single.

New York took a 7-2 lead, but Yan Gomes and Abraham Almonte had consecutive doubles in the sixth, and Lonnie Chisenhall followed with a single to score Almonte. Francisco Lindor scored on a Dellin Betances wild pitch in the seventh to make it 7-5, but Betances escaped further damage.

W: Nathan Eovaldi (12-2)

  1. There is no way I am trading one of the Tribe’s top 3 pitchers for a middle of the lineup bat. Besides no one can say who that middle of the lineup bat would be anyways.
