Cleveland’s Justin Masterson pitched a four-hitter for his third career shutout as the Indians won the opener 1-0 and stopped the Yankees’ five-game winning streak.

Pitching in just his second game for the Yankees, Nuno walked three walks and struck out three. The former Cleveland draft pick became the only left-hander other than CC Sabathia or Andy Pettitte to start for New York since 2008.

Rookie Adam Warren finished the five-hitter for his first big league save.

New York chased Trevor Bauer (1-2) during a six-run seventh and handed the Indians just their third loss in 16 games.
