It was the offense finally snapping into gear which allowed the New York Yankees to finally end their five-game losing streak.

Although starter Nate Eovaldi didn’t impress anybody (5.1 IP, 4 R, 7 H), the New York Yankees bats finally rose from the dead on Thursday night in Cleveland.

It allowed the Pinstripers to snap their horrifying five-game losing streak with an 8-6 victory over the Indians.

Brian McCann did damage early. His three-run home run with two outs in the top of the first hit Indians starter Trevor Bauer hard.

Stephen Drew also played a major role finishing 2-for-3 with a solo shot in the second and driving in two.

With the Toronto Blue Jays having already won their game against the A’s earlier today, the Yanks have kept within .5 of the AL East lead.

New York now moves onto their biggest series of the season in Toronto starting Friday night.
