CLEVELAND -- Francisco Lindor readily accepted the blame, even though his manager didnt believe he was at fault.The All-Star was called out for baserunners interference in the bottom of the ninth inning -- accidentally plowing over Yankees third baseman Chase Headley -- to keep the score tied.New York went on to beat the Indians 7-6 on Brian McCanns RBI double in the 11th on Saturday afternoon.Had Lindor not interfered with Headley on a slow chopper hit by Carlos Santana, Cleveland would have loaded the bases with none out against All-Star reliever Andrew Miller. Instead, the inning ended after back-to-back strikeouts by Jose Ramirez and Juan Uribe.I messed up, I should have known better, said Lindor, who went 3 for 6 with two runs. The umpire (crew chief Tom Hallion) was protecting the fielder, like he has to. Its a rule. A rule is a rule.I was running and looking at the ball, and boom, I hit him. Headley was right there.Ramirez had three singles and three RBI for the Indians, who lead the AL Central by 6 1/2 games over Detroit. Santana added two hits and drove in a pair of runs.Lindor had his league-leading 16th three-hit game and raised his batting average to .303, but Cleveland manager Terry Francona insisted his shortstop deserved a better fate.I can see why it was called, but I really disagree with it, he said. Tom said you have to allow the fielder a chance to field it, and I told him it wasnt Headleys ball, it was (shortstop Didi) Gregorius. Frankie was watching Gregorius and he hit the third baseman hard, but the ball was to their left.Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman (3-0) pitched a career-high 2 1/3 scoreless innings, striking out four. The Indians have lost three of four at home after winning 13 straight games at Progressive Field.Cleveland right-hander Tommy Hunter (2-2) retired the first two batters in the 11th before allowing a single to Caarlos Beltran and McCanns double, which right fielder Abraham Almonte failed to stop from bouncing off the wall. Cheap Jaguars Jerseys Free Shipping. We were in no-doubles (mode) and Abe got over-aggressive, Francona said sternly. If he gets it, they dont score. The little things really hurt us today.Danny Salazar gave up a season-high six runs in 5 2/3 innings, including a two-run homer to Gregorius. The All-Star fanned five and had his ERA rise to 2.75, falling behind Bostons Steven Wright (2.68) for the AL lead.It was a tough lineup to face, but I felt really good and tried to keep attacking their hitters, Salazar said.Yankees starter CC Sabathia, who exited with a 6-5 lead, struck out two over 5 2/3 innings. The left-hander spent eight years with Cleveland and is the career leader with 51 wins and 706 strikeouts at Progressive Field.NERVOUS NELLIEFrancona is pleased that Salazar and right-hander Corey Kluber will take part in their first All-Star Game in San Diego, but admits being worried about potential injuries. I wish all of our guys would go -- and not pitch, he said. But thats not the way it works. They deserve the chance, so we would never stand in their way.TRAINERS ROOMYankees: 1B Mark Teixeira (right knee soreness) was given the day off to rest, but manager Joe Girardi expects him to play Sunday in the final game before the All-Star break.Indians: OF Michael Brantley (right shoulder soreness) will learn Sunday when his minor league rehab assignment will begin.
