Indians Rally Past Yankees & Split Series

By Jason Miller

(Cleveland, OH)  --  Michael Brantley hit the go-ahead solo home run in the eighth inning as the Indians edged the Yankees 5-2 in Cleveland.  The Tribe added two insurance runs later in the eighth to secure the four-game series split.  

Edwin Encarnacion hit a two-run homer in the fourth for Cleveland, which got seven frames of two-run ball from Trevor Bauer in a no-decision.  Carlos Carrasco earned the win and Cody Allen his 20th save.  

The Indians enter the All-Star break at 52-and-43.  

Chad Green surrendered all three eighth-inning runs to take the loss and Neil Walker homered for New York.  The Yankees enter the break four-and-a-half games behind Boston in the AL East at 62-and-33.

Six Indians players were selected for Tuesday's All-Star Game in Washington.  Catcher Yan Gomes was added to the American League squad Saturday night.  The Indians will resume the season Friday night in Texas against the Rangers.
