CLEVELAND  — Mike Napoli hit one of five Cleveland home runs — a 462-foot blast that nearly hit the scoreboard in left field — and the Indians  routed the New York Yankees 10-2 on Friday night.

Napoli’s two-run homer in the third inning landed near the top of the bleachers, a few feet below the scoreboard, for his 18th homer of the season.

Cleveland’s five home runs marked a season high, with three coming in the first inning. Jason Kipnis homered twice while Carlos Santana and Lonnie Chisenhall also hit home runs.

All-Star Corey Kluber (9-8) allowed one run — Brian McCann’s solo homer — in eight innings. Kluber gave up five hits, struck out eight and didn’t walk a batter.
