Recap: Arizona vs. Cleveland

Phoenix, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Aaron Hill's hit to the wall in center field plated Gerardo Parra with the winning run in the 14th inning to boost Arizona to a wild 9-8 triumph over the Cleveland Indians Tuesday night.

Gerardo Parra, who had five hits and scored twice, singled to right off Mark Lowe (0-1), Cleveland's 10th pitcher of the night. Parra stole second and went to third on Paul Goldschmidt's flyout to deep center. Miguel Montero was intentionally walked and went to second on a wild pitch. Hill then launched his single, Arizona's 19th hit, to end the 5-hour, 32-minute marathon, which ties the longest game by time in Chase Field history.

"Both teams were spent. Neither team had anybody left to hit. Both teams stranded runners. Both teams got to the starters early. There wasn't a whole lot of room to maneuver," Indians manager Terry Francona said.

Arizona won despite leaving 19 men on base.

Carlos Santana went 4-for-5 with two RBI and Yan Gomes tallied three hits and drove in three for the Indians, who lost their fourth in a row.

Josh Collmenter (6-4), the ninth pitcher of the evening for the Diamondbacks, pitched the final inning to get the win in the opener of this two-game series.

Santana, who reached base safely in his first six plate appearances, homered off Randall Delgado to right field with Michael Brantley aboard in the 11th to give the Indians an 8-6 edge.

David Peralta went deep to right with one out in the bottom portion. The hit came off Bryan Shaw, who then walked Didi Gregorius and gave up a single to pinch-hitter Tuffy Gosewisch. John Axford was summoned from the bullpen, but he surrendered the tying single up the middle to Ender Inciarte.

After filling the bases with one out in the 11th, Arizona couldn't push across the winning run as Goldschmidt and Montero struck out.

Cleveland failed with two men in scoring position in the 12th, and Jason Kipnis tried for an inside-the-park homer in the 13th, but was cut down at the plate. His hit to center field caromed away from Inciarte, but Gregorius made a perfect relay throw to the plate to end the frame.

"You talk about all the time not rushing in situations like that. Didi threw a bullet in there," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said.

Montero's RBI double off the wall in left-center plated a run in the first inning, but Lonnie Chisenhall highlighted a four-run second with a two-run triple to right-center. Gomes started the scoring in the frame with an RBI single.

Inciarte singled in a run in the bottom of the second, but Gomes lifted a sacrifice fly in the third for a 5-2 lead.

Goldschmidt and Montero drove in runs in the fourth, and Martin Prado scored on a Gregorius squeeze bunt in the fifth.

The Diamondbacks went ahead the next inning thanks in part to a controversial call. Parra was caught in a rundown between second and third. Asdrubal Cabrera missed the swipe tag and Parra was ruled safe at second. Hill then singled up the middle off Vinnie Pestano to give Arizona a 6-5 edge.

The Indians were down to their final out in the ninth against Addison Reed, but Gomes singled to center to knock in Cabrera from second.
