Pettitte Fractures Ankle in Yankees’ Win Over Indians

Andy Pettitte broke his ankle on the same day the Yankees put CC Sabathia on the disabled list, and Robinson Cano hit a go-ahead homer to help New York beat the Cleveland Indians 5-4 Wednesday for a three-game sweep.

The Yankees have to face at least two starts without Sabathia and at least six weeks without Pettitte, who fractured a bone in his ankle in the fifth inning when he was hit in the leg on a line drive by Casey Kotchman.

Rafael Soriano put the first two batters on base in the ninth and walked in a run with two outs before getting Asdrubal Cabrera to fly out to left for his 17th save.

Freddy Garcia (2-2) pitched 2 2-3 hitless innings for the win.

Ubaldo Jimenez (7-6) allowed four hits, four walks and four runs in six innings while striking out seven for the Indians.
