NEW YORK -- The Yankees knew they'd have their hands full Monday night because dealing with Cleveland Indians ace Corey Kluber often is like trying to score on a right-handed version of Boston Red Sox top gun Chris Sale.
"They're a little bit different, but they also do it fairly similar in a sense," Yankees Manager Joe Girardi said of the pitching matchup in his pre-game interview.
The Yankees' only three hits all night were a leadoff homer in the third by Chase Headley that tied the game, then a two-out double by Jacoby Ellsbury and Frazier's single in the fifth.
-- Mired in a long slump, rookie right fielder Aaron Judge was benched on Monday and he'll probably sit out Tuesday night's game as well, manager Joe Girardi said.
-- Designated hitter Matt Holliday is expected to go from rehabbing from high-A Tampa to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre due to a lot of bad weather in Florida.
