SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Cleveland's Corey Kluber had a strong final spring outing; Arizona's Wade Miley, not so good.
Kluber, the No. 2 starter in the Indians' rotation, allowed two runs on five hits in seven innings in Cleveland's 3-2 victory over a Diamondbacks' split-squad on Thursday.
Kluber blanked Arizona for six innings before being tagged for a pair of runs in the seventh. He struck out seven and walked one.
Miley, the starter in the Diamondbacks' season-opening 3-1 loss to Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers in Australia, gave up three runs on seven hits in 4 2/3 innings, walking one and hitting a batter.
Both teams have exhibition games Friday and Saturday. Arizona plays the Chicago Cubs at Phoenix's Chase Field, the Indians are at San Diego.
Cleveland finished with the second-best record in all of spring training at 19-8, which of course has no significance in the long run.
Except, manager Terry Francona said, "it means that we played pretty good baseball, which I love."
Arizona manager Kirk Gibson was not in the dugout for the second game in a row. He is on crutches after undergoing knee surgery. Bench coach Alan Trammell took his place.
Both Kluber and Miley are scheduled to pitch on Tuesday.
