Kluber Shuts Down Yankees 3-0

NEW YORK (AP) — Corey Kluber pitched four-hit ball for a superb six innings Saturday and Jose Ramirez hit his first career homer as the Cleveland Indians ended a four-game skid with a 3-0 victory over the New York Yankees.

Michael Brantley also homered and had three hits for Cleveland, which won at Yankee Stadium for the first time in eight games. Ramirez hit a two-run drive in the second inning and had three hits.

Derek Jeter had an infield single in the sixth inning to pass Honus Wagner for sixth on the career list with No. 3,431. But New York was 0 for 9 with six strikeouts with runners in scoring position in losing for just the second time in eight games.

Kluber (13-6) did not allow a hit until Jacoby Ellsbury doubled with one out in the fourth. He struck out 10 to beat New York for the first time in three tries. The right-hander has allowed only one earned run since the ninth inning of a win against Detroit on July 19. He has won five straight decisions.
