Aug. 27 (Bloomberg) -- Curtis Granderson hit his 200th career home run as the New York Yankees beat the Cleveland Indians 4-2 in the finale of their six-game road trip.

Nick Swisher and Ichiro Suzuki added run-scoring singles for the Yankees (74-53), who pushed their lead in the American League Eastern Division to four games over the Tampa Bay Rays.

The Yankees open a six-game homestand today with the first of three games against the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Rays were off yesterday, while the Baltimore Orioles, who are 4 1/2 games back in the AL East, had their scheduled game against the Blue Jays rained out.

The Washington Nationals’ losing streak hit four games with a 4-1 defeat against the Philadelphia Phillies. The Nationals still have the best record in Major League Baseball at 77-50 and lead the National League East by 4 1/2 games over the Atlanta Braves, who beat the San Francisco Giants 7-1.

The Giants still have a two-game NL West against the Los Angeles Dodgers, who lost to the Miami Marlins 6-2.

The St. Louis Cardinals pulled within six games of Cincinnati in the NL Central with a 8-2 win over the Reds.
