Lonnie Chisenhall Hits 1st Career MLB Home Run

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Derek Jeter pulled within three hits of 3,000 for his career, lining a double in three at-bats against Cleveland's Justin Masterson, who shut down the powerful New York Yankees for eight scoreless innings and led the Indians to a 5-3 win on Wednesday night.

Jeter went 1 for 3 and also drew a walk from Masterson (7-6), who was backed up by two sensational plays from All-Star shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera in the eighth.

Rookie Lonnie Chisenhall hit his first career homer for Cleveland, which took two of three from the AL East leaders. The Central-leading Indians scored two runs in the first off starter Phil Hughes (0-2), but spent most of the night wasting scoring chances. They left the bases loaded twice and stranded 13 runners.
