Corey Kluber dominated the White Sox on Saturday, registering his third complete game of the season in picking up his 14th win (9.0IP, 5H, 1ER, 0BB, 8SO,104 pitches/74 strikes)… Moves into 17th place on the Indians single-season strikeout list with 223, passing Luis Tiant (219, 1967) and Gaylord Perry (216, 1974) on that list. More:
- Has now allowed 2 or fewer earned runs in 13 of his last 16 starts and in 20 of his 31 starts overall (65 percent). He’s limited opponents to 4 or fewer earned runs in each of his last 29 starts, the longest such streak in MLB.
- Marks Kluber’s third complete game this season with 0 ER and 8 SO or more… That’s the most such games by an Indians pitcher since Len Barker had 3 in 1981.
- Kluber now has six starts this season in which he’s struck out 8 or more and walked 0 batters, the only Indians pitcher
- His 18 starts with 8 SO or more tie him for 4th in Indians history (since 1914) for a single season (Score, 1956; McDowell, 1966-67).
