DETROIT, Mich. - Former Stetson Hatter Corey Kluber
led the Cleveland Indians to a 3-2 win over the Detroit Tigers on Labor Day,
giving the right-hander his first major league victory on the mound.
Kluber, who made his first start with the Indians this
season on August 2, allowed just two runs on six hits in six innings pitched on
Monday. The former Stetson pitcher struck
out four batters, walked only one, and retired the last eight batters he faced.
The Indians won the game by a score of 3-2 thanks to
Kluber's start, three solid innings of relief, and a two-hit, two-RBI day at
the plate from Asdrubal Cabrera. The
shortstop's sacrifice fly to center field drove in the game-winning run for Cleveland.
Kluber is now 1-3 on the season with 30 strikeouts and 10
walks. He holds an ERA of 4.79 in seven
starts over 35.2 innings. The Indians
play at Detroit again tonight and Wednesday
before beginning a four game series at Minnesota
