Indians Vs. Yankees Final Score: Cleveland Drops Game 1 In New York

The Cleveland Indians dug themselves a hole against the New York Yankees on Monday night and they could not escape from it. They were down 6-0 after three innings and lost the first game of the three-game set by a final score of 7-1.

It was a rough night for Indians starter Josh Tomlin (3-5). He gave up six hits to score six runs in three innings before being replaced by Scott Barnes.

A double from Robinson Cano and homers from Dewayne Wise, Nick Swisher and Cano gave the Yankees their 6-0 lead. That lead was extended to 7-0 with an RBI triple from Wise in the sixth inning.

Cleveland's lone run came on a Jason Kipnis sac fly in the eighth.

New York's Hiroki Kuroda impoved to 7-7 with the win, striking out seven and giving up just five hits in seven innings of work.

The Indians will have a chance to rebound in Game 2 on Tuesday at 7:05 p.m. ET.
