CINCINNATI (AP) - The Diamondbacks called up right-hander Bo Schultz to help their tired bullpen on Tuesday before the second game of their series against the Cincinnati Reds.

Arizona has gone extra innings in two of its last three games, including a 15-inning, 2-1 win over the Reds in their series opener on Monday night.

Schultz was on the opening day roster and appeared in one game before being optioned to Triple-A Reno on March 29. He went 8-7 with a 5.75 ERA in 21 starts. Manager Kirk Gibson figured to use him in a long relief role if needed.

The Diamondbacks optioned outfielder Alfredo Marte to Reno. He batted .258 in 16 games with one homer and seven RBIs.
