Stephen Drew and Martin Prado each had an RBI single for the Yankees, who sit a half-game in back of Kansas City in the race for the second wild card while remaining five games behind first-place Baltimore in the American League East.With David Phelps sidelined by elbow inflammation, former Indian Esmil Rogers (2-0) made the most of his first start of the season and allowed one run on four hits in five innings to pick up the win. Right fielder Ichiro Suzuki made a running catch to prevent Cleveland from chipping away at a 5-2 deficit in the top of the sixth and Beltran deposited a 1-2 curveball from John Axford over the wall in right in the bottom of the inning.Carlos Santana drove in three runs and David Murphy had an RBI single for the Indians, who have dropped four in a row overall and seven of eight on the road to fall 7 1/2 games behind first-place Detroit in the AL Central. Santana's two-run double highlighted a four-run seventh, but Adam Warren, Rich Hill and Dellin Betances kept Cleveland off the scoreboard the rest of the way.Trevor Bauer (4-7) labored through a 44-pitch first inning and permitted five runs on six hits before exiting after 3 1/3 frames.GAME NOTEBOOK: Jeter slapped a ground ball up the middle in the first inning that was fielded by SS Jose Ramirez, but his throw to first was unable to be corralled by Santana.
