The Reds would battle back to tie it at four in the seventh on a Chris Heisey RBI double. But in the ninth, the Reds bats broke out.

But it was all Yankees from that point out as the Bronx Bombers lit up Ubaldo Jimenez and pulled away to an eight run lead. The Indians cut into the New York lead in the eighth on a Mike Aviles two-run homer, but it would not be enough. Cleveland battles New York again tonight at 7.
