Error leads to 7-run inning, Cleveland Indians slow New York Yankees 11-3

Four Tribe players homered in the rout.

THE BRONX, N.Y. — Gary Sánchez failed to catch a foul popup that led to a seven-run fifth inning capped by Andrés Giménez's three-run homer, and the Cleveland Indians routed the Yankees 11-3 on Saturday to slow New York's playoff run.

Franmil Reyes hit an RBI double off Albert Abreu in the big fifth inning and a two-run homer in the sixth against Andrew Heaney. Yu Change and José Ramírez also homered for the Tribe (72-74), while Aaron Civale went six shutout innings to earn his first win since going on the injured list in June (11-4).
