Corey Kluber turned in another strong performance with seven shutout innings against the Orioles on Saturday. He gave up five hits and two walks with nine strikeouts.
Kluber has now thrown five straight quality starts and has an ERA of 2.02 with a very impressive 48:7 K:BB over that span (35.2 innings). He now leads the majors with 83 strikeouts on the season. It's difficult to find fault with what the young right-hander has done thus far and there are few holes in his game that warrant acknowledgement. He'll make his next start at home against Colorado.ANALYST: Howard Bender
