July 10, 2014 - 12:50:26 am

NEW YORK: Michael Brantley had two doubles, a home run and three RBIs, and right-hander Trevor Bauer pitched seven strong innings as the Cleveland Indians beat the New York Yankees 5-3.

First baseman Nick Swisher also homered for the Indians, who roughed up Masahiro Tanaka for five runs on 10 hits.

Bauer (3-4) pitched seven innings, holding New York to two earned runs on four hits.

Bauer and right-handers Bryan Shaw and Cody Allen combined to retire the last 13 men in a row to end the game, with Allen picking up his 10th save.

Rajai Davis had three hits and three RBIs as the Detroit Tigers erased an early five-run deficit to thump the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Miguel Cabrera and Torii Hunter each had three hits, two runs scored and two RBIs for the American League Central Division-leading Tigers (49-37).

Justin Verlander (8-7) gave up five first-inning runs, then held the Dodgers scoreless over the next five innings to get the win.

Right-hander Jacob deGrom struck out 11 in seven shutout innings as the Mets routed the Atlanta Braves.

The Braves, however, remained in first place in the NL East by virtue of Washington’s game against Baltimore being rained out.

St. Louis Cardinals rookie Kolten Wong drilled a solo homer in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Cardinals their second successive walk-off win.

The Cardinals (49-42) drew within three games of first-place Milwaukee in the National League Central.

Dominic Brown homered in the third inning and drove in two more runs with an RBI single in the fifth as the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Milwaukee Brewers.
