CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) – The San Diego Padres beat the Indians 2-1 for a split of Wednesday’s doubleheader.

Cleveland’s pitching dominated a 2-0 victory in the first game. Zach McAllister pitched 7 2/3 scoreless innings and Jason Kipnis hit a two-run homer in the sixth.

Robbie Erlin allowed one run in six innings and Chase Headley’s single in the sixth drove in the go-ahead run for the Padres in the nightcap. Erlin (1-0) held the Indians to four hits, struck out six and didn’t walk a batter. Three relievers blanked the Indians, including Huston Street, who pitched the ninth for his third save.

San Diego scored in the first, thanks in part to a call on the field that was ruled a no-catch by first base umpire Bob Davidson, even though Indians right fielder Elliot Johnson appeared to have made the play on a ball hit by Chris Denorfia.
