MLB Final Score: Cleveland Indians 1, New York Yankees 0

Jason Miller

Jason Kipnis hit a first inning home run, and Justin Masterson did the rest.

Not much time, so here's some quick bullets.

  • Whatever superlatives you can think of apply to what Justin Masterson did today. Only four hits, two of which didn't leave the infield. Complete game on a day that the Indians desperately needed length. Dominated a lineup full of left-handed hitters.
  • Jason Kipnis was the offense today, hitting a first inning home run. It should have been 2-0, because Michael Bourn was called out at second base on an attempted steal just before the homer, with replay showing Bourn safe on the play.
  • There was a great crowd at Progressive Field, both in quantity and quality, on a very cold spring day. I think people are starting to notice this team.
