Frontrunners: The Yankees have yet to trail in this series.

3,000 Watch: Derek Jeter is at 2,993 with four games to go in the homestand.
Update, 7:13: Not a bad first for Burnett, three up, three down, six pitches.
Update, 7:15: Getting closer. Jeter rips the second pitch into left. No. 2,994.
Update, 7:20: Bases loaded, nobody out, A-Rod up.
Update, 7:22: That was strange. Fly ball, shallow left-center. Jeter tagged. Michael Brantley didn’t immediately throw it in. But Jeter held.
Update, 7:27: Nice escape act by Carrasco. Cano fans and Swisher grounds out, side retired.
Update, 7:46: After Burnett stranded a runner in second in the top of the second, the Yankees have Carrasco in trouble again in the bottom half, first and second, one out. Posada extended his hitting streak to seven games with a single to start it.
Update, 7:50: No hit this time for The Captain. Bounces into a force at third.
Update, 7:55: Inning over. That’s five stranded now in two innings for the Yankees.
Update, 8:12: The Indians strand a runner at second in the top of the third, and Nick Swisher hits into a double play with first and second and one out in the bottom half. The Yankees are 0 for 7 with runners in scoring position.
Update, 8:16: Swisher takes a dive in right-center, but Michael Brantley’s hit deflects off the end of his glove and it’s a leadoff triple in the fourth.
Update, 8:18: Good job by Cabrera bouncing a 1-2 curve the other way and through the hole into left to make it 1-0.
Update, 8:25: Burnett strands his third runner at second, getting out of the inning.
Update, 8:33: 1-2-3 fourth for Carrasco.
Update, 8:39: 1-2-3 fifth for Burnett, who has 6 Ks.
Update, 8:42: Easy fly to right for Jeter.
Update, 8:44: 1-2-3 fifth for Carrasco.
Update, 8:45: Something must have happened to Jeter. He’s been pulled from the game. Eduardo Nunez is at short for the sixth.
Update, 8:50: 1-2-3 sixth for Burnett.
Update, 8:58: Cano singles, but he’s left on first. So it’s 1-0 heading for the seventh.
Update, 9:03: Jeter left the game with a sore right calf.
Update, 9:14: Gardner bunts a two-strike pitch foul for an out, Cervelli fans for a third time and Nunez grounds to third – 1-0 heading for the eighth.
Update, 9:27: First and second, two outs and Burnett is done, walks off to a well-deserved ovation. David Robertson is in.
Update, 9:32: Robertson gets out of it. Now Tony Sipp replaces Carrasco.
Update, 9:43: End of eight, 1-0. Both teams have five hits.
Update, 9:50: 1-2-3 ninth for Robertson. Chris Perez will try to close it out for the Indians.
Update, 9:59: Yankees lose, 1-0.
