NEW YORK — Despite an early 1-0 lead in the Bronx, the Indians faltered in the first inning and never recovered. That spelled doom and the 4th loss in a row by a score of 10-6 to the Yankees.

Carlos Santana drove in the first run in the top of the 1st, but the Yankees scored 5 times in the bottom of the frame to set the tone for the rest of the night.

Carlos Beltran singled in a run to tie the game at 1-1. Chase Headley walked with the bases loaded to give the Yanks the lead for good. Stephen Drew singled in the third run and Martin Prado singled up the middle. A bobble by Jason Kipnis allowed a second run to score and it was 5-1 before some fans were settled into their seats.

Cleveland trailed 5-2 in the bottom of the 6th when Beltran hit a grand slam to appear to put the game out of reach.

Cleveland got 4 runs back in the top of the 7th to make it a 10-6 game.

The Indians and the Yanks play a 1 p.m. game on Saturday in the Bronx.
