NEW YORK — The Cleveland Indians know that Corey Kluber is the probably biggest reason they are still in the hunt for a playoff spot. He showed why on Aug. 9.

Kluber pitched four-hit ball for a superb six innings and Jose Ramirez hit his first career homer among three hits as the Indians ended a four-game skid with a 3-0 victory over the New York Yankees.

“Every time he toes the rubber it’s a win,” Reliever Cody Allen said.

Michael Brantley also connected and had three hits for Cleveland, which won at Yankee Stadium for the first time in eight games and improved to 57-58. Ramirez hit a two-run drive in the second inning.

Derek Jeter had an infield single in the sixth inning to pass Honus Wagner for sixth on the career list with No. 3,431. But New York was 0-for-9 with six strikeouts with runners in scoring position in losing for just the second time in eight games.

“I try not to think about it but today, Honus Wagner, he’s the last one on the list that has played short at all — so that one hits home a little bit,” Jeter said. “But anytime you’re passing guys that have had the careers that they’ve had, it’s kind of overwhelming.”

Kluber (13-6) did not allow a hit until Jacoby Ellsbury doubled with one out in the fourth and struck out 10. The right-hander has allowed only one earned run in his last 31 1-3 innings over four starts. He has won six straight decisions.

“Just stick with my same approach. Maybe just executing a little better,” Kluber said of his recent success.

Scott Atchison, Bryan Shaw and Allen each pitched an inning with Allen finishing striking out two to finish the five-hitter for his 15th save.

Brandon McCarthy (4-1) lost for the first time in six starts with New York. He received a scare in the third when he took a liner off his right foot but he continued for 6 1-3 innings, yielding two runs and seven hits. McCarthy was hit in the head by a liner in 2012 and looked briefly shaken this time.

“I don’t think about it,” McCarthy said. “It’s one of the things when I was coming back that I had to accept the reality that things can come back at you — you still have to play.”

Yankees Manager Joe Girardi said x-rays of McCarthy’s foot were negative.
