Indians Drop 4th in a Row
NEW YORK — The Cleveland Indians (37-36) did not love New York Tuesday night, falling to the Yankees (45-28) 6 to 4.
The game was dominated by the Yankees, who got on the board early with three runs
in the second. Additional runs in the fifth, seventh and eighth gave the Yankees a 6-0 lead over the Indians up to the ninth inning.
Perhaps the most notable moment of the game came in the top of the seventh inning when Yankees’ Dewayne Wise dove into the stands trying to catch a foul ball hit by Jack Hannahan. Though the ball did not appear to be caught, it was counted as the third out against the Indians. Hannahan argued his case, though too forcefully and was ejected from the game.
The Indians gave it their all in the ninth, bring home four runs, three of which were thanks to a home run by Jose Lopez. However the Tribe was unable to overtake the Yankees, losing by a final score of 6 to 4.
The Indians finish their series with the Yankees Wednesday afternoon with first pitch at 1:05 ET.
