#CyKluber countdown: CK strikes out 14 for second straight start, stifles the Twins for win No. 17
Date/score: September 21, 7-2
Opponent: Minnesota Twins
Pitching line: 8 IP, 2 ER, 14 SO, 1 BB
2014 strikeout total: 258
Key at-bat(s): Minnesota cut its deficit to 5-2 in the fifth on doubles by Chris Hermann and Danny Santana, but Kluber struck out Brian Dozier and Joe Mauer to end the frame. He did the same (to Oswaldo Arcia and Josmil Pinto) in the sixth after a one-out single by Trevor Plouffe.
Notable: Kluber had at least two strikeouts in each of the first six innings as he matched his career high for strikeouts in a game with 14 – set in his previous start, a Sept. 16 win over the Astros in Houston.
Game score (avg. Game Score, developed by sabermetrician Bill James, is 49-50): 73
