The flawless game, the no-hitter, the shutout and the lead.

Still, Gray and the Yankees trailed 1-0 after Gray surrendered a two-out homer to Francisco Lindor in the fifth.

Their streak continued because of four consecutive solid at-bats against Bauer after he had retired the first 13 batters he faced - as well as the Yankees' ability to take advantage of Cleveland's mistakes.

Bauer walked Neil Walker to lose his ideal game.

First it was the Yankees, then it was the Astros, and finally in the top of the ninth, it was the Yankees again because Gleyber Torres, 21, was unafraid of hitting with the bases loaded and his team down by two.

Then he walked Austin Romine to force home Walker and tie the score, 1-1. Ronald Torreyes is starting in his place at shortstop. Lindor allowed the ball to bounce out of the pocket of his glove, picked it up and threw past third baseman Jose Ramirez to the screen in front of Cleveland's dugout as Andujar and Torres scored. Gray made three starts against the Indians in 2017, compiling a 1-2 record with a 4.86 ERA and 14 strikeouts.

Sabathia, who struck out a season-high seven, improved to 3-0 and watched his ERA fall to a minuscule 1.39. There was speculation that the Indians should have challenged the play at third because it appeared Torreyes may have been out before the fourth run scored, but the Tribe did not challenge.

Gray, who lowered his ERA to a still unsightly 6.00, needed just 22 pitches to get through the first two innings.

The teams will be meeting for the first time since October 11, when Didi Gregorius hit a pair of homers off Corey Kluber and Aroldis Chapman struck out four in two scoreless innings to secure a 5-2 victory. The Yankees are averaging 5.74 runs per game this year while allowing 3.97 per contest.

Sabathia is 4-3 with a 3.65 ERA in 11 career regular-season starts against Cleveland.

Indians center fielder Bradley Zimmer left the game in the seventh after colliding with the outfield fence chasing a double by Romine. Luckily it hit him on a protective pad he wears on the shoulder. The Yankees have really turned it on lately, going 12-1 in their last 13 to pull within one game of the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox, who visit them next after the Indians.

Bauer threw 102 pitches, 65 (64 percent) for strikes.

The Indians and Yankees drew a crowd of 43,075 to Yankee Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
