The Yankees lose series finale to the Indians

The New York Yankees lost the series finale to the Cleveland Indians and weren't able to complete the four game sweep.  A.J. Burnett pitched great but he took the loss as Carasco pitched even better for the Indians.  The Yankees had a chance in the first couple of innings to jump out in front and really take control of the game but they couldn't do that.  The Yankees had the bases loaded and no outs in the first and didn't score, first and second no outs in the second and didn't score and then first and second one out in the third and nothing.  They didn't do much of anything after the third inning. 

Burnett pitched 7 2/3 innings giving up one run on five hits, he walked one in the last inning he pitched and srruck out eight.  Dave Robertson pitched 1 1/3 perfect innings.  He came in to the eighth inning with a two out jam and got out of it. 

Derek Jeter got a hit in the game to move to six away from 3000.  Jeter left the game in the fifth inning with a calf injury.  Jeter had an MRI after the game and it is a grade one strain of the calf and right now he is day-to-day.  The Yankees stated tonight that they will make a decision tmorrow on if he will go on the disabled list or not.  It may be the best thing for him to rest it and come back really strong but we will see what they do.  Robinson Cano was the only player with two hits. 

The Yankees won three out of four in the series after losing three straight to the Red Sox.  The Sox were off today and with the Yankees loss they are 2 1/2 games out of first place in the AL East.  The Yankees will begin a three game series with the Texas Rangers tomororw night before they head to Chicago to take on the Cubs and then Cincinatti.  It will be round two of interleague play and they will have five series in a row of interleague.  The Yankees will send C.C. Sabathia to the mound on Tuesday night vs. Alexi Oganda.
