Tyler Clippard (1-0) pitched a scoreless inning, and Seung Hwan Oh finished for his first save. McKinney made his major league debut a day earlier.
Estrada, who was already in the clubhouse getting his post-game shoulder treatment when Pillar stole home, watched the play unfold on TV.
He started the season on the restricted list to serve his five-game suspension for making an inappropriate gesture after homering against Japanese pitcher Yu Darvish in Game 3 of the World Series. Keynan Middleton earned his first save. Sevy walked three and struck out seven. He's 6-4 with a 3.19 ERA in 13 career starts against the Yankees. He allowed three hits, three walks and had eight strikeouts. Travis Shaw drove in three runs.
Brandon Drury hit a two-run homer in New York's four-run third inning. "Got to credit them for finding a way to get some runs on the board but I've seen Dellin long enough to know that I have trust when I give him the ball, he's someone who's tough for a hitter to deal with". At the very least, he is going to get his opportunity to shine after the two-run double he had on Friday night.
Pillar hit a one-out single and swiped his way to third.
Admit it, you never thought Jacoby Ellsbury could be so missed, so early, this season.
Gordon led off the seventh with a tiebreaking shot off Dan Otero (0-1). They were the first runs Olson has allowed with Cleveland - a year ago he threw 20 scoreless innings in 30 appearances for the Indians. Gray responding by fanning the next three batters.

I'm sure Tyler Austin will have something to say about that after yesterday's multi-home run performance, but the point is you don't bring up a prospect of Andujar's quality just to stick him on the bench.
Betances allowed two runs and three hits in two innings. Joe Kelly closed for his first save. The team has lost 1.0 units for bettors taking the moneyline and 0.7 units ATS. The bullpen has a 2.79 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 9.3 K/9.
