Hill’s RBI Gives Arizona 9-8 Win In 14 Innings

PHOENIX (AP) — Aaron Hill singled in Gerardo Parra from third in the 14th inning to give the Arizona Diamondbacks a 9-8 victory over Cleveland Indians just past midnight Wednesday morning in a game that matched the longest in Chase Field history.

Parra tied his career high with five hits in a game that saw Cleveland tie it with a run in the ninth and both teams score two in the 11th.

At 5 hours, 32 minutes, the game matched the Diamondbacks’ 10-9 win against St. Louis on April 3, 2013.

Parra singled off Mark Lowe (0-1), the Indians’ 10th pitcher. He stole second and advanced to third on a fly ball.

Carlos Santana’s two-run homer put Cleveland up 8-6 in the 11th.

David Peralta homered in the bottom of the inning and Ender Inciarte’s RBI single tied it.

Josh Collmenter (6-4), the ninth pitcher for Arizona, pitched a scoreless 14th.
