HOUSTON— Corey Kluber struck out a career-high 14 in seven innings and the Cleveland Indians halted their four-game losing streak with a 4-2 win over the Houston Astros on Tuesday night.

Kluber (16-9) allowed one run and seven hits to earn his third straight win. His previous high for strikeouts was 13 against the Chicago White Sox on May 4.

Yan Gomes’ two-run homer off Darin Downs in the sixth increased Cleveland’s lead to 4-1.

Cody Allen got the last out in the eighth and pitched the ninth for his 21st save.

Michael Bourn scored on Carlos Santana’s groundout in the first, and the Indians went up 2-1 in the fourth when Lonnie Chisenhall scored on an error by Robbie Grossman after Gomes singled to left field.
