Indians 1, Yankees 0

NEW YORK — Derek Jeter limped off the field with a sore right calf four innings after getting his 2,994th hit, and Carlos Carrasco escaped early trouble to pitch the Indians past the Yankees 1-0 Monday night.

There was no immediate word on the severity of Jeter's injury. For details, see 5C.

Jeter hit a leadoff single in the first and the Yankees quickly loaded the bases with no outs against Carrasco. But Jeter hesitated on Alex Rodriguez's medium-depth fly and stayed at third — centerfielder Michael Brantley appeared ready to concede the run — and Carrasco got out of the jam. Carrasco set down 13 of his last 14.

Cleveland manager Manny Acta shuffled his batting order, putting Carlos Santana, Brantley and Asdrubal Cabrera into lineup spots where they'd never hit before. The Indians had totaled 21 runs while losing nine of 10. They scratched out just enough to win.

Brantley tripled off the glove of diving rightfielder Nick Swisher in the fourth and Cabrera bounced an RBI single to left. That stopped the Indians' 0-for-20 drought with runners in scoring position.
