Tribe Wins Opener in New York; Indians 3, Yankees 2

The Indians won the opener of a four-game series at Yankee Stadium on Thursday, 3-2, behind another strong outing from resurgent Josh Tomlin.

Tomlin, who allowed just two runs in his season debut Saturday in Minnesota, allowed one on Thursday in seven innings, striking out six.

Lonnie Chisenhall had an RBI double in the second, Michael Brantley an RBI single in the third and Jose Ramirez an RBI single in the fourth.

Brantley went 2-for-4, including his MLB-best 38th double, while Jason Kipnis, in his second game back from the disabled list, went 3-for-4. Brantley is hitting .439 with 10 RBI in August.

Abraham Almonte made a fantastic catch in the sixth to help Tomlin continue to cruise. Chisenhall, meanwhile, made a great catch in right in the seventh.

W: Josh Tomlin (1-1)

L: Ivan Nova (5-5)

HR: Alex Rodriguez (26, 4th inning off Tomlin 0 on, 0 Out)
