Bieber pitches into 8th, Indians hang on to beat Yankees 6-5

CLEVELAND (AP) — Following another strong start from Shane Bieber, Indians closer Cody Allen managed to hit the brakes just in time during yet another tense ninth inning.
Allen overcame Giancarlo Stanton’s leadoff homer in the ninth and retired pinch-hitter Didi Gregorius with the tying run on first to close out Cleveland’s 6-5 win over the New York Yankees on Friday night.
Allen, making his first appearance since allowing a career-high six runs in the ninth inning against Cincinnati on Tuesday, recorded his 19th save in 20 chances. The right-hander tried to use that experience as a positive this time.
“What’s the old saying, experience comes from failure,” Allen said.
