Trevor Bauer faced the Diamondbacks for the first time since being traded from Arizona, but didn't feature in the final decision.

Indeed, neither starter did, with both Bauer and Vidal Nuno proving dominating through the front five innings. To that point, they had combined (with the help of some TOOTBLANs on both sides) to face one batter over the minimum. But both men lost their shutouts in the sixth. First, the Diamondbacks got on the board, as a Jordan Pacheco double-play with runners on the corners broughr Jake Lamb in, but the Indians responded with runs in their half, on a ball that got past a diving Aaron Hill at second. However, Arizona tied things up in the seventh, an RBI groundout by Hill bringing home Mark Trumbo.

That was all the action off either starter, and this one went to the bullpens. In the later innings, the Indians threatened steadily, leaving two men on base in the sixth, seventh and eighth, while Hill's groundout started a run of eight consecutive Diamondbacks retired through the middle of the ninth. And the Indians duly prevailed in the bottom of the ninth, when former Diamondback prospect Zach Walters homered off Randall Delgado with one out, giving Cleveland a walk-off win. Trumbo had a hit and two walks for Arizona.
