CLEVELAND (AP) — Zach Walters’ one-out homer in the ninth inning gave the Cleveland Indians a 3-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks in the first game of a doubleheader on Wednesday.
Walters, acquired at the trade deadline from Washington for Asdrubal Cabrera, hit a 1-2 pitch from Randall Delgado (1-3) that narrowly cleared the wall in right field.
Walters was called up from Triple-A Columbus on Sunday when outfielder David Murphy and designated hitter Nick Swisher went on the disabled list with injuries. The home run was the fourth of his career.
Cody Allen (4-2) worked around a two-out walk in the ninth.
Trevor Bauer, pitching against the team that took him with the third pick of the 2011 draft, allowed two runs and struck out nine in a career-high eight innings.
