NEW YORK -- Andy Pettitte broke his ankle on the same day the Yankees put CC Sabathia on the disabled list, and Robinson Cano hit a go-ahead homer to help New York beat the Cleveland Indians 5-4 Wednesday for a three-game sweep.

The Yankees have to face at least two starts without Sabathia and at least six weeks without Pettitte, who fractured a bone in his ankle in the fifth inning when he was hit in the leg on a line drive by Casey Kotchman.
