New York Yankees bullpen holds on to one in Cleveland

The New York Yankees defeated the Cleveland Indians on Saturday night.  The game took place at Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio and the final score was 2-1.  Jordan Montgomery started for the Yankees and he pitched very well and the bullpen was also very good.  The offense didn’t do much but Chase Headley had a big homerun. 

Montgomery pitched five innings giving up three hits and a run with no walks and seven strikeouts.  David Robertson won his fifth game of the season pitching two innings and he gave up two hits with two strikeouts, Dellin Betances pitched a perfect inning with two strikeouts and Aroldis Chapman saved his 14th game of the season pitching an inning and giving up a hit and he struck out one. 

Danny Salazar pitched seven innings giving up four hits and a run with three walks and 12 strikeouts.  Zach McAllister pitched 2/3 of an inning giving up a hit and a run with a strikeout and he lost his first game of the season, Tyler Olson retired the only batter that he faced and Nick Goody pitched an inning with a walk and two strikeouts. 

Brett Gardner had a hit and drew two walks, Headley had a hit and an RBI and Aaron Judge had a hit.  Didi Gregorius had two hits and an RBI, Gary Sanchez drew a walk and Todd Frazier drew a walk.  Gregorius hit two doubles and Headley hit a homerun.  The Yankees were 1-4 with runners in scoring position and left six men on base. 

Francisco Lindor had two hits, Michael Brantley had two hits and Carlos Santana had a hit and an RBI.  Giovanny Urshela had a hit, Lindor hit a double and Santana hit a homerun.  The Indians were 0-5 with runners in scoring position and left five men on base. 

In the first Gregorius hit an RBI double to give the Yankees a 1-0 lead.  In the second Santana hit a solo homerun to tie the game at one.  In the eighth Headley hit a solo homerun to give the Yankees the 2-1 lead and that would be the final score. 

The two teams will play the rubber game on Sunday afternoon.  The Yankees will be looking for the four game split and the Indians to take three out of four.
