To Infinity and be Yan! Gomes’ walk-off gets Indians 4-1 win over Rockies; Three Takeaways

2. Corey KKKKKKKKKKKluber

Corey Kluber put on another masterful, complete game performance.

Kluber gave up just three hits and one run while striking out 11 in the process. The lone run came off of his second pitch of the night, when Charlie Blackmon hit a solo homer. Tuesday also marked Kluber’s second consecutive complete game, and his fourth this season.

He also, once again, made history.

With his 11 strikeouts tonight, Kluber has recorded double-digit strikeouts in the last five games, tying a club record. If this all sounds familiar, it’s because Kluber broke the record earlier this season in his five starts between June 14 and July 4.

He now has twelve double-digit strikeout games this season, and is tied with Bob Feller for third most in a single season in club history.

In the process, Kluber netted his 13th straight game with at least eight strikeouts. His streak is the longest since Randy Johnson’s streak of 17 games with at least eight strikeouts from September 1999 through June 2000. He is just one of three pitchers to accomplish this feat, along with Johnson and Pedro Martinez.
