Cesar Hernandez had two hits, Jose Ramirez had a hit and an RBI and Eddie Rosario had a hit and an RBI.  Franmil Reyes had three hits and three RBI, Jordan Luplow had a hit and an RBI and Austin Hedges had a hit, an RBI and drew a walk.  Luplow hit a double and F.

In the fourth Urshela hit a two-run homerun to give the Yankees a 2-0 lead.  Ford hit a solo homerun to go back-to-back and make it 3-0.  In the bottom of the fourth Rosario hit an RBI single, Reyes hit a three-run homerun and the Indians grabbed a 4-3 lead.  In the bottom of the fifth Ramirez hit a sac fly pushing the lead to 5-3.  In the bottom of the sixth Luplow hit an RBI double and Hedges an RBI single making it a 7-3 game and that would be the final score.
