Yankees win for 14th time in 15 games, beat Indians 5-2

The Yankees have now won 15 of 16 games for the first time since September 1980.

Torres, who connected for his first big league homer Friday night, raised one arm and turned back toward the NY dugout after rounding first base. "I foresee [German] being in the rotation - at least a couple times through - just based on where we are roster-wise and availability-wise".

"Can't give good offenses like that extra baserunners, free baserunners", said Indians starter Trevor Bauer, who had been unhittable before the Yankees scored four in the fifth.

The Yankees, winners in 12 of their last 13 games, returned to the Bronx to keep their red-hot play alive.

After Miguel Andujar grounded to third and pinch hitter Giancarlo Stanton was intentionally walked, up stepped the 21-year-old Torres, who sent a full-count sinker over the wall to end it. It nearly ended with a last at-bat-off though, when Aaron Judge awakened the force of a bases-loaded, two-out walk in the eighth to give the Yankees a 6-5 lead.

With the Yankees up by three runs with one out in the top of the sixth, the Indians' Edwin Encarnacion hit a slow chopper to Neil Walker at first with Jose Ramirez at third.

"Both games have been lost because of me", Lindor said.

Gary Sanchez and Aaron Judge also hit home runs that helped stake Sabathia to a 5-0 lead.

Unknown holds two-shot lead after first round of Wells Fargo
Part of his issue seemed to come from judging the speed of the greens; many of his putts from short range ran out of energy. He knows that won't be the case on Friday (Saturday, Manila time) when he will be in one of the first groups off the tee.

"I'm not helping my team and that's something that bothers me".

Added the skipper: "Not exactly how we drew it up exactly, but guys really take a lot of pride in not giving away at-bats, and we continued to see that tonight".

Making his first start since sparking a Twitter spat by suggesting Houston pitchers may be using pine tar, Bauer (2-3) retired his first 13 batters in order on 45 pitches, then needed 41 pitches to get the final two outs of the fifth. Throwing error by Francisco Lindor.

Before the Yankees imploded, CC Sabathia allowed a season-low three hits in six innings. He is 2-0 through six starts with a 2.82 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP.

"The stuff is fine", Boone said before Friday's game. That's unacceptable. I wish I could take it back, but I can't.

However, the Yankees were able to take advantage of a exhausted Indians bullpen, eventually scoring the go-ahead run on a bases loaded walk.

Lindor, as a parting thought, said, "We have another game Sunday and hopefully I can turn a double play".

The Yankees were in cruise control for the first seven innings of tonight's game, and then the wheels came off and things got insane. "They don't over-swing or try to do too much, they just stick to the plan and stay in the moment". The Indians are on a roll offensively and they are now averaging 4.69 runs, ranking them 11th in the Majors. "We're trying to work through it, because we feel handcuffed a little bit". "I'm not shocked by it, I would say, because I know how talented they are, but to have it happen this quickly is pretty special".
