Cleveland 2 - Yankees 3

Recaps: LGT | MLB | Box Score

When the Yankees made weak contact in the first inning, the ball fell in to the tune of 2 cheap runs they didn’t deserve. When the Indians made weak contact with the garbage that Tanaka was throwing, the balls got caught. Other stuff happened, but that is the game in two sentences.

Today: Plesac v Paxton at 1 P.M. EDT
