D-backs beat Indians in 12, avoid DH sweep

CLEVELAND — Tuffy Gosewisch's RBI single with one out in the 12th inning gave the Arizona Diamondbacks a 1-0 win over the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday night to earn a split of a doubleheader.

Five Arizona pitchers combined on the shutout as the Diamondbacks avoided a sweep after Zach Walters' walkoff homer in the ninth gave the Indians a 3-2 win in the opener.

Randall Delgado (2-3), the losing pitcher in the first game, pitched the 11th. Addison Reed gave up pinch-hitter Lonnie Chisenhall's two-out double in the 12th, but struck out Jason Kipnis for his 28th save to end the 4-hour, 16-minute game.

Alfredo Marte drew a leadoff walk from C.C. Lee (0-1) to start the winning rally. After a sacrifice, Gosewisch singled up the middle for the game's only run.
