CLEVELAND — Steven Matz struck out a career-high nine and allowed three hits over seven innings, bouncing back from a terrible opening start and leading the New York Mets over the Cleveland Indians 6-0 Sunday.

Given a six-run, second-inning lead, Matz (1-1) retired the side in order three times and allowed two runners in the same inning once. He threw 94 pitches and walked two.

In his opening-start, the 24-year-old left-hander allowed seven runs in 1 2/3 innings against Miami last Monday, his first regular-season loss. He was 4-0 after his callup last June.

Corey Kluber (0-3) gave up six runs and nine hits in six innings, struck out eight and walked one. He is 9-19 since winning the 2014 AL Cy Young Award.
