Aaron Civale gave up two cheap runs in the first inning on Friday night and the Indians could just not recover, losing 3–2 to even the series at one going into the weekend.
Gary Sanchez fisted a ball into right-center to drive in a run and Gleyber Torres found an unoccupied hole on the right side of the infield to drive in the second, both with two outs. The only other run Civale, who went six innings, allowed was unearned when Yasiel Puig misplayed a ball in right.
Puig eventually atoned for the error with a solo home run in the seventh. Jose Ramirez knocked Masahiro Tanaka out of the game with a double immediately after but Tommy Kahnle came in to strike out the next two men. Tanaka had thrown just 83 pitches to that point in the seventh.
Ramirez, who was hitting .198 on June 12, had another three hits, including a homer. He’s up over .252 now with three homers in the two games in this series. He’s hitting over .450 with seven homers in his career at Yankee Stadium.
New York Yankees
After Kahnle got the final two outs in the seventh, Zack Britton and Aroldis Chapman nailed down the final six outs. Chapman fanned Jason Kipnis with 102 to finish it off.
CC Sabathia will make his first start since the final few days of July. He’s been dealing with a sore knee and received a cortisone shot to help with the inflammation and pain. He allowed seven hits and four runs the first time he faced Cleveland this season, back in early June.
Mike Clevinger and his 12.7 strikeouts per nine innings will oppose him. He’s only given up 54 hits in over 67 innings this season, too, and that includes the 11 Boston got him for in his last start. He allowed four runs in that start for the first time since June 28.
