Members of the Cleveland Indians front office, with a little help from sidekick Slider, visited the Cleveland Foodbank on Thursday morning to help the staff sort food and pack backpacks for kids to take home on weekends.

Nearly 30 members of the Indians front office visited on Thursday, sorting vegetables that then would be sent to local food pantries, and preparing backpacks that eventually would end up going home with kids from school on weekends, when they’re most likely to miss meals.

Photo Gallery: Indians split Wednesday twinbill with SD

The Indians split Wednesday’s traditional doubleheader with the Padres, winning the first game, 2-0, and dropping the second one, 2-1.

The Tribe got two more excellent outings from its starting pitchers: Zach McAllister went 7.2IP scoreless innings in the opener, marking the longest scoreless outing of his career, before giving way to Cody Allen in the eighth. John Axford earned his fourth save with a scoreless ninth. Jason Kipnis provided all the offense the Indians needed, with a two-run homer in the sixth that just barely cleared the wall in center.

In the second game, Trevor Bauer, up from Triple A Columbus for a spot start, struck out a career-high eight batters but took a hard-luck loss. The Padres scored in the first on a bizarre play and call by the umpires: Chris Denorfia sent a long fly ball to right field that Elliot Johnson appeared to catch; upon transferring from his glove to his hand, he dropped the ball, and the umpires ruled no catch, putting runners on second and third with no one out. Bauer escaped the jam allowing only one run. (Here is video of the play.)

The Indians got a run back in the third on Mike Aviles’ sac fly, which scored Yan Gomes. But Bauer allowed a run in the sixth when Chase Headley singled with the bases loaded, scoring Everth Cabrera; Bauer again limited the damage, but the Padres limited the Indians to six hits for the victory.

Cleveland shut out Cincinnati 4-0 on Friday afternoon at Goodyear Ballpark, as the Tribe pitching staff permitted just 3 hits and a trio of walks.

Starter ZACH McALLISTER retired 6 of the 7 batters he faced – save for one free pass – before giving way to JOSH TOMLIN, who followed with 2.0 spotless frames of his own and a pair of strikeouts. Five Tribe relievers carried the torch, recording 3 outs apiece to protect a 2-0 lead that RYAN RABURN provided with his 2-run HR off Homer Bailey in the 2nd inning. The Tribe plated 2 more runs in the 6th on CARLOS MONCRIEF’s RBI-single when a throwing error on the play permitted a second tally to come home.

The Indians will play their first true road game of the spring on Saturday when the team travels to Camelback Ranch for a 3:05PM ET first pitch against the Chicago White Sox. RHP AARON HARANG is scheduled to get the start opposite LHP John Danks. The broadcast will be available on the Indians Radio Network (WTAM in Cleveland) and through an online webcast on
