Just like that, Suzuki went from last place in the AL West to first in the AL East. And he helped New York beat his former club by going 1 for 4 with his 16th stolen base.

Alex Rodriguez hit his 15th home run this season — the 644th of his career and 299th as a Yankee — in the eighth. He also had a double in the fourth and scored twice.

Masterson struck out six as Cleveland broke a four-game losing streak. The righthander gave up only one run and seven hits, improving to 5-2 over his last eight starts.

Chris Perez pitched the ninth for his 27th save in 29 chances.
