Yankees score twice in 8th off Kluber, top Indians 7-4

CLEVELAND (AP) - Aaron Hicks drove home Didi Gregorius from first base with a one-out double in the eighth inning off Cleveland ace Corey Kluber, sending the New York Yankees to a 7-4 win over the Indians on Thursday night. Hicks drove a 3-2 pitch from Kluber (12-5) to deep center field, and Gregorius scored easily when the ball one-hopped the wall. Indians manager Terry Francona elected to stay with Kluber in the eighth rather than turn things over to his shaky bullpen, which has the AL's highest ERA. The Yankees added another run in the inning on Greg Bird's sacrifice fly off Oliver Perez. Brett Gardner homered twice and Gregorius also connected for the Yankees, playing at Progressive Field
