Indians 1, Yankees 0; Yankees 7, Indians 0

CLEVELAND — With a large, boisterous crowd on hand and the dreaded Yankees in for an old-school doubleheader, the Indians scored just one run in 18 innings.

Leave it to Nick Swisher to find the sunny side of a shutout.

"Hey," Swisher said, "three games in 36 hours and win two out of three — I don't feel bad about that."

Though they were blanked 7-0 in the second game Monday, the Indians managed a split thanks to a four-hitter by Justin Masterson and a home run by Jason Kipnis in a 1-0 win in the opener.

In Game 2 of a doubleheader not originally on the schedule, Vidal Nuno pitched five innings of three-hit ball to win his first major-league start and Vernon Wells and Lyle Overbay drove in two runs apiece for the Yankees.

New York was held to one run in the first six innings of the second game by Trevor Bauer before rolling to their sixth win in seven games.

Nuno, a former Cleveland draft pick, was the only lefty other than CC Sabathia or Andy Pettitte to start for New York since 2008.

"He did an unbelievable job, considering he hasn't pitched in a while," manager Joe Girardi said of Nuno, who hadn't pitched since his big league debut on April 29. "He's very poised out there."

    Thursday was an off-day for the Rays, who are coming off a solid western swing. I assume there was no rest for the tag-team Rays baseball brain trust of Matt Silverman, Erik Neander and Chaim Bloom, whose job it is to improve this team in advance of the trade deadline. They've done a good job …
