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."

    ST. PETERSBURG — The night was arranged to honor former Rays manager Joe Maddon in his first visit back to the Trop, and the warm response from the bipartisan crowd and scoreboard video tribute were proper acknowledgments of his hefty role in the Rays' success during his nine-year stint.

    Chris Archer's night ended with his 11th loss, but he and the Rays should feel good about his six solid innings. After the forearm tightness scare in Chicago, he had two rough outings, allowing 15 hits and 11 runs while lasting just seven innings total.
