Phelps, Teixeira lead Yankees over Indians 4-3
NEW YORK — David Phelps followed the worst start of his young career with his best, allowing a mere infield single in six shutout innings and getting home run help from Mark Teixeira as the New York Yankees beat the Cleveland Indians 4-3 Tuesday night.
Teixeira hit his second homer of the season since coming off the disabled list last Friday. His three-run shot made it 4-0 in the third inning, and came a day after he lined a grand slam against Cleveland.
Drew Stubbs hit a three-run homer in the seventh off Joba Chamberlain. But Nick Swisher lined into a key double play in the eighth and the Indians dropped their third in a row and seventh straight on the road.
Phelps (4-3) neatly bounced back from his previous outing, when he gave up five runs while getting just one out against the New York Mets.
