Nick Swisher hit a solo homer to cap a four-run ninth inning against Addison Reed Friday night, lifting the Cleveland Indians to a 9-8 victory over the Chicago White Sox for a sweep of the longest doubleheader by time for two nine-inning games. After pounding Chicago 19-10 in the opener in a game that lasted 4 hours, 2 minutes, the Indians came through in the end to take the nightcap that ran 3:51. The 7:53 total made it the longest doubleheader with two nine-inning games on record. Reed (3-1) entered with an 8-5 lead in the ninth but quickly ran into trouble, blowing his fourth save in 25 chances. He started the inning by giving up three straight singles to Ryan Raburn, pinch-hitter Asdrubal Cabrera and Michael Bourn to make it a two-run game. He then threw a wild pitch to pinch-hitter Jason Giambi, allowing Cabrera to score. Jason Kipnis then tied it with a sacrifice fly to center field, driving in Bourn, and Swisher drilled a long homer to right with two outs on a 3-2 pitch to put Cleveland ahead. That made a winner of Matt Langwell (1-0), who got his first career win even though he allowed two runs in the eighth. Vinnie Pestano walked Wells with one out in the ninth but struck out three for his sixth save in eight chances, finishing a game that lasted 3:51 and ended just after 1 a.m. Central time.
