PHOENIX -- Nick Ahmed provided the big hit of the day for the Arizona Diamondbacks -- with his left forearm. Ahmed was struck by a potential double play relay as he slid into second base in the 10th inning, and the Diamondbacks wound up beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 Sunday. With runners at the corners and one out, Andy Marte hit a grounder to shortstop Jordy Mercer, who flipped to second baseman Jayson Nix for a forceout. Ahmed came in with his arms raised up, and was hit by Nixs throw. The ball rolled away, allowing Tuffy Gosewich to score the winning run. "Thats the way were taught to slide and play the game. Go in hard and late and it wasnt a dirty play in my mind at all," Ahmed said. Manager Clint Hurdle and the Pirates lingered on the field to argue with the umpires, to no avail. There was no video review of the final play, and crew chief Ron Kulpa said the call couldnt be challenged. After the game, the umpires looked at a replay for their own sake. Second base umpire Lance Barrett stood by his no-call on interference and Kulpa backed him. "The guy has to do something obviously, willfully, intentionally to break up that double play. Guys slide into second base all the time with their hands up," Kulpa said. "When Lance told him what he had, we talked about it, but Clint wasnt very irate. Its a big play. We looked at the tape, and Lance got it right," he said. Hurdle felt otherwise. "I felt there was an extra effort in getting his hands up, in the way," he said. Ahmed had a bandage over his arm after the game. "I was anticipating if the ball was on the ground trying to go in hard and breaking up two," Ahmed said. "I went in hard and slid late, and it looked like Nix kind of dropped down to try to make the throw and it just hit me in the arm." Gosewich doubled with one out in the 10th and Ahmed walked. A wild pitch by Mark Melancon (1-3) moved Gosewich to third. Diamondbacks reliever Evan Marshall (4-2) escaped a one-out, second-and-third jam in the top of the 10th by striking out pinch-hitter Gaby Sanchez and Travis Snider. Arizona starter Trevor Cahill was in line for just his second win this season, but reliever Brad Ziegler struggled for the second straight day. The Pirates tied it in the eighth on Josh Harrisons single, Gregory Polancos double and Andrew McCutchens sacrifice fly. McCutchen left the game moments later with left side discomfort. AHOY! The Pirates signed Nix before Sundays game. He was released by Tampa Bay on Friday and also played for Philadelphia earlier this season.

NEW YORK -- Carlos Beltran is coming back to New York, this time to the Bronx. The All-Star outfielder and the Yankees agreed Friday to a $45 million, three-year contract, two people familiar with the deal said. Beltrans agreement came hours after second baseman Robinson Cano decided to leave for Seattle and on the same day pitcher Hiroki Kuroda agreed to return for 2014. Beltrans deal was detailed to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because it was subject to a physical and had not yet been announced. The agreement was first reported by the New York Daily News. Beltran, 36, is an eight-time All-Star who played for the Mets from 2005-11, when he was dealt to San Francisco. He signned a $26 million, two-year contract with St.dddddddddddd. Louis before the 2012 season and reached the World Series for the first time this year. Slowed by knee injuries, Beltran has retained a potent bat -- especially in October. He hit .296 with 24 homers and 84 RBIs for the Cardinals this year and added two homers and 15 RBIs in the post-season. Beltran injured ribs in the World Series opener when he banged into Fenway Parks right-fight fence while robbing Bostons David Ortiz of a grand slam. Beltran joins a crowded Yankees outfield. Brett Gardner, Ichiro Suzuki and Alfonso Soriano are set to return, and Jacoby Ellsbury has a $153 million, seven-year deal pending.
