Recap: Cleveland vs. NY Yankees

Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) - Justin Masterson cooled off the New York Yankees, tossing his second shutout of the season, as the red-hot Cleveland Indians nipped the New York Yankees, 1-0, in the opener of Monday's makeup doubleheader at Progressive Field.

Masterson (6-2) held the Yankees, who were riding a season-high five-game winning streak, to four singles. The Cleveland right-hander walked three and struck out nine.

"From the very first pitch of the game he had power, he had a breaking ball, he attacked hitters," Indians manager Terry Francona said.

David Phelps (1-2) was the hard-luck loser for New York, allowing a first- inning homer to Jason Kipnis. Phelps gave up just three more hits over 6 2/3 innings. He fanned seven and walked five.

The Indians are a major league-best 16-5 since April 20.

The twinbill was scheduled after rain halved a four-game series last month.

Kipnis crushed Phelps' 2-2 offering to right-center field after Michael Bourn was thrown out on a close play at second base on an attempted steal. All five of Kipnis' homers this season have been hit in the opening frame.

New York's best chance to get to Masterson came in the second inning. The Yankees loaded the bases with two outs on a pair of infield hits sandwiched around a walk. Alberto Gonzalez, though, went down swinging to end the threat.

The Indians had opportunities to expand their lead, but stranded two men on base in the second, fourth and seventh innings.

Brennan Boesch kept the Yankees' hopes of a comeback alive with a two-out base hit in the ninth, but Masterson struck out Vernon Wells to seal the third shutout of his career.

"We ran into a guy who was really on his game," Phelps said of Masterson.
