  • Game 124: Mariners 3, Indians 1

  • Game 125: Yankees 3, Indians 1

W: CC Sabathia, L: Cody Allen

Corey Kluber appeared to be in trouble at the outset of the first inning after back-to-back doubles from Derek Jeter and Nick Swisher brought home a run, followed by a walk. Kluber was able to escape the inning with limited damage and worked out of multiple jams through the course of the game to limit the Yankees to one run on six hits and two walks through five innings. The Indians tied the game in the fourth on an Asdrubal Cabrera home run. The game remained tied until the top of the seventh when Swisher had a two-run bomb off Allen. (full recap here)

That was the only support Masterson would need as he guided the Tribe through 6.2 innings, while allowing only one run on seven hits and two walks with six strikeouts. Vinnie Pestano provided 1.1 innings of scoreless relief. Chris Perez got the save. (full recap here)
