Pitching:   Andrew Brackman got the start for the Yankees.  Brackman's season-long control issues continued in the 1st inning with 2 walks and a wild pitch, but he pitched out of the jam.  In the 2nd, the first 3 batters reached on 2 more walks and a hit batter.  SWB manage Dave Miley had seen enough and pulled him.  Brackman got the loss (2-4).  Brackman's line:  1 IP,  3 runs,  0 hits, 1 K- 3 walks, HBP, W/P.

In the 4th, a hit batter, double, and walk, loaded the bases.  A rbi sac fly, and a 3-run homer gave Indy a 7-2 lead, and Pope was taken out.
