Yankees Vs. Indians Final Score: Cleveland Falls Yet Again, 4-2

The Cleveland Indians fell for the 10th time in 11 games on Sunday afternoon, dropping a 4-2 decision to the New York Yankees at Progressive Field, 4-2.

Nick Swisher was the main contributor on offense for the Yanks, going 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI. Curtis Granderson also added his 33rd home run of the season.

Ubaldo Jimenez made it through just five innings, allowing three runs on eight hits while striking out four. Yankees starter Freddy Garcia only went 4.2 innings, allowing two runs on four hits while striking out six.

Facing an early 3-0 deficit, the two runs for the Indians on the afternoon came on a Carlos Santana single in the bottom of the fifth that cut the score to 3-2. Jason Kipnis had a great day at the plate, going 3-for-4, but most of his offense didn't translate to runs.

Granderson's homer in the top of the sixth put the game away for the Yankees.
