NEW YORK -- Derek Jeter tied Hall of Famer Honus Wagner for sixth place on the career hits list and Carlos Beltran highlighted a five-RBI night with a sixth-inning grand slam as the New York Yankees opened a three-game series with a 10-6 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Friday night.
Jeter tied Wagner with his 3,430th hit when he started a five-run first inning with an infield single against Cleveland right-hander Trevor Bauer (4-7). In his first three chances at passing Wagner, Jeter grounded out, struck out and and had a sacrifice.
Jeter's third attempt prompted the Indians to intentionally walk center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury. Beltran followed by sending a 1-and-2 curveball from John Axford into the right-center field seats. It was Beltran's 14th home run of the season, 11th career grand slam and first since May 8, 2012, for St. Louis against Arizona's Ian Kennedy.
In his fourth attempt at passing Wagner, Jeter flied out with two on in the seventh inning.
The Yankees won for the fifth time in six games and went a season-high seven games above .500 (61-54). They reached double digit runs for the fourth time this season and first time at home since scoring 11 against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim last Aug. 14.
Every Yankee reached at least once, though only Beltran had a multi-hit game as the Yankees also capitalized on two errors and drew seven walks.
Beltran's other hit was a RBI single that forged a 1-1 tie. He scored the go-ahead run on first baseman Chase Headley's bases-loaded walk.
First baseman Carlos Santana drove in three runs for the Indians (57-59), who were attempting to reach .500 for the 17th time this season. Former Yankee Nick Swisher added an RBI single for Cleveland, which increased its league-leading total to 91 errors.
Esmil Rogers (2-0) pitched well in a spot start for the Yankees, allowing one run and four hits in five innings. He threw 87 pitches before David Huff and Shawn Kelley gave up five runs in the sixth and seventh.
Bauer dropped his third straight start while throwing 44 of his 79 pitches in the first inning. He allowed five runs and six hits in 3 1/3 innings.
The Indians took a 1-0 lead on Santana's two-out RBI single in the first, but the Yankees came back with a five-run inning.
They sent 10 men to the plate and capitalized on shoddy Cleveland defense to take a 5-1 lead as seven straight hitters were not retired by Bauer. Jeter started it with an infield single on a tough play that required shortstop Jose Ramirez to make a throw on the run while doing a spin move that moved him past Wagner.
Jeter scored the tying run on Beltran's base hit and the Yankees took the lead on a bases-loaded walk to Headley. Second baseman Stephen Drew and right fielder Martin Prado followed with RBI singles and the Yankees scored their fifth run on an error by Jason Kipnis on Prado's single when the second baseman's throw went over Ramirez's head.
Cleveland had two on with two outs in the third, but this time Santana struck out.
