New York Yankees designated hitter Carlos Beltran (36) connects for a grand slam home run against the Cleveland Indians in the sixth inning of a baseball game, Friday, in New York.

Beltran hits grand slam, Rogers solid for Yankees

NEW YORK – Carlos Beltran hit a grand slam and drove in five runs as the New York Yankees broke out to support improbable fill-in starter Esmil Rogers and beat the sloppy Cleveland Indians 10-6 on Friday night for their sixth win in seven games.

Derek Jeter tied Honus Wagner with his 3,430th hit in a five-run first inning against Trevor Bauer (4-7) and Beltran’s 11th career slam highlighted a five-run sixth. The Indians, who have the majors’ worst fielding percentage, prolonged both innings with errors in their fourth straight loss overall and seventh in a row in the Bronx.

The Yankees walked seven times in moving seven games above .500 (61-54) for the first time this season.

Picked up off waivers on July 31 after the Toronto Blue Jays cut him for the second time this season, Rogers (2-0) became the 12th player to make a start for New York.
