NEW YORK, N.Y. (AP) – Carlos Carrasco rejoined the Cleveland rotation in fine fashion by pitching five dominant innings and the Indians nearly tossed another shutout at Yankee Stadium, beating New York 4-1 Sunday.

Jacoby Ellsbury homered with two outs in the ninth off Indians closer Cody Allen, ending New York’s season-worst scoreless streak at 19 innings. The shot let the Yankees avoid a dubious distinction — not since 1999 had they been blanked in two straight games, STATS said.

Jason Kipnis got three hits and scored three runs as the Indians finished 4-3 against New York — only twice in the last 22 years has Cleveland taken the season matchup.

A day after Cleveland pitchers combined on a five-hit shutout and struck out 15 Yankees, Carrasco (4-4) and four relievers threw another five-hitter.

The Indians have put outfielder David Murphy and designated hitter-first baseman Nick Swisher on the 15-day disabled list, a day after they both made early exits because of nagging injuries.
