Kluber leads Indians past Twins 8-1
CLEVELAND — Corey Kluber pitched a three-hitter for his third complete game of the season, leading the Cleveland Indians to an 8-1 win over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday.
Kluber (7-12) didn’t allow a hit until Joe Mauer’s two-out single in the seventh. The reigning AL Cy Young Award winner struck out 10 and walked one in his sixth career complete game — all coming in the last two years.
Aaron Hicks hit an RBI double for Minnesota with two out in the ninth, but Mauer bounced to first on Kluber’s 100th pitch for the final out.
