The Indians really know how to crash a party.

After outlasting former ace CC Sabathia, the Tribe bludgeoned the Yankee bullpen for nine runs in the seventh inning to spoil the opener of the New Yankee Stadium with a 10-2 win.

It is the Indians second consecutive victory.

Both Sabathia and Indians starter Cliff Lee were effective, but each took more than 100 pitches to get to the sixth inning in a 1-1 tie.

With Sabathia out of the game, the Indians took advantage of relievers Jose Veras and Damaso Marte in the seventh, highlighted by a grand slam by Grady Sizemore and Victor Martinez.

As for the Yankees, the New York Post headlines used its typical vernacular with words such as: "Doomed" and "Debacle" .

The Indians found it odd, even uncomfortable, facing Sabathia for the first time.
