GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) -- Shelley Duncan visited with dad Dave, then drove in two runs to help the Cleveland Indians beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-2 on Monday.

Arizona starter Joe Saunders left after being hit on the side of the left shin by a line drive off the bat of Carlos Santana. The left-hander said he was taken out of the game as a precaution.

Duncan singled home Santana from second base with two outs in the first inning off Saunders' replacement Joe Martinez. Duncan later scored on Ryan Spilborghs' single and got an RBI in the fourth on a bases-loaded walk.

Jason Kubel and Willie Bloomquist drove in runs for Arizona.

Cleveland starter Ubaldo Jimenez allowed one run and three hits in three innings.
