Recap: Cleveland vs. NY Yankees

Cleveland, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Asdrubal Cabrera's bases-loaded triple ignited a seventh-inning rally that lifted the Cleveland Indians to a 9-3 come-from-behind win over the New York Yankees.

The Indians scored all nine runs in their final two at-bats to erase a 3-0 deficit and earn a split of this four-game series. Cabrera delivered the biggest blow, a game-tying smash off Matt Thornton (0-3), while rookie Roberto Perez and Carlos Santana each cracked two-run homers in the eighth to help Cleveland pull away.

Michael Brantley contributed two hits and a pair of RBI to the comeback, with Jason Kipnis and Chris Dickerson each going 3-for-4 with two runs scored. Perez ended 2-for-3 and also scored twice in his major league debut.

The Indians also received good work from their bullpen, with five relievers combining for 4 1/3 scoreless innings in relief of starter T.J. House. Carlos Carrasco (2-3) was awarded the win after working a scoreless top of the seventh.

"Our bullpen came in and kept the score where it was," said Indians manager Terry Francona. "So when you get a hit it's meaningful."

Derek Jeter finished 2-for-4 in his final regular-season game in Cleveland. Zelous Wheeler also had two hits, including a two-run homer, for New York.

Yankees starter David Phelps held the Indians scoreless through six innings of play and left the game still in line for the victory despite surrendering back-to-back singles to Dickerson and Perez to begin the bottom of the seventh.

"He threw pretty well," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said of Phelps. "It's unfortunate we weren't able to win that game for him."

Kipnis then greeted Thornton with an infield hit that loaded the bases, and Cabrera cleared them with a shot into the right-field corner that knotted the score at 3-3.

Brantley followed with a liner to center that New York's Jacoby Ellsbury snared with a diving attempt, though Cabrera easily trotted home on the play to put Cleveland ahead.

The Indians kept up the onslaught in the eighth. A Dickerson double preceded Perez's first big league homer -- a shot off Jim Miller that was originally ruled a double but overturned. Brantley later singled home Kipnis for a 7-3 advantage prior to Santana extending the margin with his 14th homer of the season.

The game's early stages saw missed opportunities on both sides, with the Yankees leaving the bases loaded in the first inning and Cleveland stranding seven runners through the opening four frames as Phelps worked in and out of trouble.

Wheeler finally broke the scoreless deadlock in the fourth, driving House's offering inside the foul pole in left with Francisco Cervelli aboard.

Cervelli also scored New York's third run after being hit by a pitch in the fifth, taking second on Wheeler's infield hit and crossing the plate on a Yangervis Solarte single.

Phelps was charged with two runs allowed over six-plus innings. House lasted just 4 2/3 innings, permitting three runs on eight hits and striking out five.

Game Notes

Jeter produced his 1,000th career multi-hit effort, joining Ty Cobb, Pete Rose, Stan Musial, Tris Speaker and Hank Aaron as the only players to do so in MLB history ... Thornton had not allowed an earned run in his previous 19 appearances, which spanned 12 1/3 innings ... Solarte was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre prior to the game to replace Carlos Beltran, whom New York put on the 7-day concussion list with a broken nose ... Brantley has gone 15-of-31 with eight RBI during a seven-game hitting streak.
