Diamondbacks-Indians game postponed

CLEVELAND (AP) -

The Arizona Diamondbacks and Cleveland Indians were postponed Tuesday night after a rain delay of 3 hours, 40 minutes that began in the top of the fourth inning.

The game will be played as part of a traditional doubleheader on Wednesday starting at 4:05 p.m.

The Indians led 1-0 when the delay began at 7:57 p.m. The tarp was pulled off the field around 11 p.m. with the plan of starting about a half hour later, but a heavy storm hit again and the game was called at 11:37 p.m.

Indians players Jason Kipnis, Lonnie Chisenhall and Mike Aviles did several head-first slides across the tarp before the game was called.

Arizona's Vidal Nuno and Cleveland's Trevor Bauer are the starters for Wednesday's regularly scheduled game.
