CLEVELAND - Asdrubal Cabrera went 5 for 5 with two homers and five RBIs as the Indians completed a three-game sweep of the reeling Reds with a 12-4 win Sunday to gain, for the moment, bragging rights as Ohio's best team.

Cabrera hit a two-run homer in the first inning off Edinson Volquez (3-2) for the Indians, who did early damage after winning the series' first two games with late-inning comebacks. Cabrera added a solo homer in the sixth to give Cleveland an 8-4 lead.

Michael Brantley, Cabrera and Shin-Soo Choo - the top three hitters in Cleveland's lineup - went a combined 10 for 12 with six runs and nine RBIs.

Carlos Carrasco (3-2) gave up four runs in six-plus innings, handing the Reds their fifth straight loss.

Joey Votto and Jay Bruce hit solo homers for Cincinnati.

Now seen more as a contender than early season surprise, the Indians are 14 games over .500 for the first time since 2007.

With their first sweep of the Reds in seven years, they improved baseball's best record to 29-15, 18-4 at home.

Cabrera's day didn't start out well. The steady shortstop made a throwing error on Drew Stubbs' grounder to open the game, but he more than made up for it with his first five-hit, multihomer game. Cabrera also had an error in the sixth, but it didn't cause any harm.

The Indians missed Cabrera last season, when they lost 93 games. He was out two months after breaking his left forearm in a collision with former Indians third baseman Jhonny Peralta. Other than that, the 25-year-old Cabrera has been everything the Indians could have hoped for since calling him up in the 2007 playoff stretch.

The Reds were within 8-4 in the seventh and had two runners on with none out, but Chad Durbin came on for Carrasco, struck out two and worked out of the jam. The Indians then blew it open in their half on RBI doubles by Jack Hannahan and Brantley, Cabrera's run-scoring single and a sacrifice fly by Choo.

As has been the case all season, Volquez was in an early hole - and this time, the Reds helped him dig it.

The Indians scored four runs in the first against the righthander, who has an 18.00 ERA in the opening inning, perhaps the main reason he has trailed in all 10 starts.

Yankees 9, Mets 3

NEW YORK - Derek Jeter tied the score with a two-run single that sparked an eight-run rally in the seventh inning in the Bronx Bombers' win in the finale of their Subway Series.

In a slump for most of the season, Jeter hit a two-run, bases-loaded single off Mike Pelfrey (3-4) that made it 3-all - just the second time since Aug. 11 that Jeter tied the score or put the Yankees ahead from the seventh inning on.

BALTIMORE - Vladimir Guerrero's two-run homer in the seventh inning spoiled Jordan Zimmermann's stellar outing in Baltimore's win over Washington.

Through the first six innings, Zimmermann (2-5) was nearly perfect, allowing just two baserunners on a walk and a double in the second inning. He had retired 13 straight. Guerrero's home run was just the third Zimmermann has allowed in 541/3 innings this season.

Red Sox 5, Cubs 1

BOSTON - Tim Wakefield held Chicago to four hits in 62/3 innings and Adrian Gonzalez had four hits of his own to lead Boston over Chicago.

The Red Sox, who took two out of three from the Cubs, have won eight of their last nine to move one-half game behind the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays in the AL East.

Making his third start of the season, this one because of injuries to John Lackey and Daisuke Matsuzaka, Wakefield (1-1) allowed just three baserunners in the first six innings on the way to winning his 180th game for the Red Sox - third in franchise history behind Cy Young and Roger Clemens.

The knuckleballer, who gave up a pair of doubles in the seventh for Chicago's only run, struck out three and walked none before leaving with two out in the seventh.

James Russell (1-5) was also filling in, because Matt Garza was scratched with right elbow stiffness. He allowed three runs and seven hits in four-plus innings.
