Recap: Yankees 6, Indians 2

Luis Severino tossed six innings of one-run ball and the Yankees cruised past the Indians, 6-2, in a Saturday matinee at Yankee Stadium.

Welcome to the Win Column: Severino's third straight quality start earned him his first major-league win, though one could argue he should already have four. The youngster held the Indians to just three hits and a run on the afternoon, walking four and striking out six.

Deep Enough: Laugh all you want about Ervin Santana calling Yankee Stadium a joke, but on some days, the park can certainly seem like one. Just ask Brett Gardner and Brian McCann, whose first-inning homers into the short porch in right -- Gardner's was a two-run shot and McCann's a solo --likely would've been doubles anywhere else.

Oops: The Indians had a chance for a routine double play with runners on the corners and none out in the second, but blew it when pitcher Danny Salazar made a wild throw into center field. The error allowed Stephen Drew to score from third and Jacoby Ellsbury to be credited with an RBI, the official scorer having ruled the play a fielder's choice and an E-1.

Next Up: The Yankees will look to split this weekend series with a finale victory on Sunday, sending the surging CC Sabathia (4-9, 5.24 ERA) to the mound versus right-hander Trevor Bauer (9-10, 4.62 ERA). First pitch is set for 1:05 p.m. ET, with YES and WFAN airing the action.
