Kluber Shuts Down Twins- Again
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Corey Kluber flirted with a no-hitter for the second consecutive outing against the Minnesota Twins before finishing with a one-hitter in his second straight complete game as the Cleveland Indians cruised to a 6-1 win Friday night.
Kluber (8-12) gave up just a solo home run to Joe Mauer and struck out seven in his fourth complete game of the season.
Giovanny Urshela had two hits, including a two-run homer for Cleveland. Francisco Lindor, Lonnie Chisenhall and Mike Aviles each had three hits to help the Indians win for the fift time in six games.
Trevor May (8-8) gave up two runs on five hits in three innings in his first start for Minnesota since moving to the bullpen in early June.
Kluber took a no-hitter into the seventh inning in his last start, also against Minnesota, before Mauer singled with two outs.
