New York, NY (WOIO) - The bats warmed up too little too late for the Indians on Tuesday night, as they fell 4-3 to the Yankees, despite a late 7th inning rally.
Scott Kazmir took the mound for the Tribe and started off quite well, allowing just one hit until the third inning. That's when the Yankees went to work, scoring on Ichiro Suzuki's RBI single, and Mark Teixeira's 3-run home run.
The Yankees took that lead into the 7th, before Drew Stubbs broke the ice, taking Joba Chamberlain deep for a 3-run home run to cut the deficit to one.
Unfortunately, that's all the Indians were going to get. Mariano Rivera came on in the 9th to close it out.
The Indians fall to 0-2 in the series and will make an attempt at redemption Wednesday afternoon in the Bronx.
