But nearly doesn't typically get it done against the Indians' ace, especially when he's facing the Yankees.

The home run ball was very, very good to the Cleveland Indians when they took on the New York Yankees in the first of an important inter-divisional three-game series at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx on Monday night.

Corey Kluber. The Indians right-hander improved to 13-4 and pitched eight innings, giving up two runs on three hits. He has allowed 33 hits and seven walks in 50 innings, striking out 58. He lowered his ERA to 2.63 with the win. He pitched a three-hitter against the Yankees on August 3 in Cleveland, striking out 11 and walking one in Cleveland's 5-1 victory.

. Three, including two by Jose Ramirez, were hit off Severino (11-6, 3.14 ERA). He allowed one run over seven innings in an August 4 win against the Yankees in Cleveland. Jose Ramirez clubbed two homers, his 19th and 20th on the season, and Carlos Santana hammered a Severino 84 miles per hour slider into the second deck in right field with one out in the seventh to break a 2-2 tie. Chasen Shreve allowed a run in the ninth.

Gary Sanchez, who allowed two more wild pitches to get past him, helped Severino out of a jam in the fourth.

In the first inning, Ramirez ripped a straight full-count fastball, which came in at 98 miles per hour, to right-center for his 19th homer to give Cleveland a 1-0 lead.

Ramirez walked with one out and stole second.

After Severino retired the Indians in order on 11 pitches in the top of the fifth, the Yankees got a runner in scoring position in the bottom half and came through. Jacoby Ellsbury scored on the play after doubling with two outs. The league leader in ERA gave up a go-ahead single to slumping No. 9 batter Todd Frazier with two outs in the fifth, but Ramirez quickly tied it again in the sixth when he sent a 99 miles per hour fastball from Severino (11-6) into the second deck in right field for his fourth career multihomer game - all this season.

After Severino struck out Francisco Lindor and Jackson on sliders to start the sixth, he threw another straight 98-mph fastball that Ramirez planted in the second deck for his 20th homer and a 2-2 tie.
