CLEVELAND— Michael Brantley’s RBI single with one out in the 16th inning lifted the Cleveland Indians to a 5-4 victory over the skidding New York Yankees, who lost their fourth straight and had their lead in the AL East over Toronto trimmed to one-half game.

Brantley hit a hard single off Branden Pinder (0-2) that first baseman Mark Teixeira couldn’t handle and easily scored Jose Ramirez from second base. Brantley’s clutch hit ended the 5-hour, 4-minute game and triggered just the second walk-off winning celebration by the Indians this season.

Austin Adams (2-0) worked a perfect inning and combined with seven other Cleveland pitchers to record 16 strikeouts.

The first four hitters in New York’s lineup — Jacoby Ellsbury, Brett Gardner, Alex Rodriguez and Teixeira went a combined 1 for 25.
