Well, that one hurt. The Indians dropped their fifth game in a row and got swept by the Yankees with a final 5-4 deficit Wednesday afternoon.

After a furious ninth inning rally, Asdrubal Cabrera flew out to left to end the game with the bases loaded. The Indians offense finally got some hits and did quite well after Andy Pettitte left the game with his ankle injury, but were unable to get the final hit late.

Cleveland now is 37-37 on the season, and 11-19 since May 25. The team heads to Baltimore (41-32 entering play tonight) for a four-game weekend series starting tomorrow night.
