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."

    The Heater

    MINNEAPOLIS — Before the Rays eventually won Sunday's 6½-hour, 15-inning marathon against the Twins 8-6, they did plenty to lose it. And we need to get that out of the way first.

    The Rays’ Evan Longoria enjoys a laugh after scoring, barely, to tie it in the ninth on Steven Souza Jr.’s two-out single.

    Times columnist Tom Jones looks back at the best and worst from a weekend of televised sports.

    Best coverage

    Takuma Sato left, celebrates after winning the Indianapolis 500 as Helio Castroneves is a little late passing him. ABC’s coverage of the race is stellar throughout, with plenty of extras but no fake drama.

    Auto racing

    INDIANAPOLIS — Takuma Sato, a journeyman driver, became the first Japanese winner of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday when he held off three-time champion Helio Castroneves in a 230-mph wheel-rubbing duel to the finish.

    Scott Dixon’s car goes over the top of Jay Howard, soaring so high that Helio Castroneves drove under it while it was airborne. Stunningly, there were no serious injuries.

    The Rays won because they got two innings of good relief from each of the two pitchers who contributed to them losing Saturday's game, Danny Farquhar (who again struck out Miguel Sano) and Tommy Hunter, who both posted zeroes.
