Indians get their 14th shutout win of the year in 3-0 victory over Rays; three takeaways

CLEVELAND– The Cleveland Indians earned their American League best 14th shutout victory on Friday night with a 3-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.

Corey Kluber earned his 17th win of the season, pitching seven shutout innings in which he relinquished just two hits. Kluber’s start was the Tribe’s 16th start this season of at least seven scoreless innings, the most in Major League Baseball.

Cleveland had to battle with Tampa Bay starter Tyler Glasnow through seven innings. They eventually got on the board in his final frame with an Edwin Encarnacion solo homer.

The Indians’ magic number to clinch the AL Central is 15 games.

Here are three takeaways from Friday’s win.
