UPDATES & NEWS
Corey Kluber gave up six runs (three earned) on six hits and two walks with five strikeouts over five innings against the Royals on Tuesday.
Kluber took his first loss since April 29 on Tuesday night, after allowing a season-high six runs which makes it 10 runs (seven earned) he has allowed over his last two starts. Despite his recent slide in production, Kluber is still sitting 6-4 with a 3.35 ERA and 1.24 WHIP through 14 starts, while owning an impressive 104:22 K:BB rate. He is going to be just fine moving forward considering he has managed to keep his walks to a minimum, so this should be viewed as just a bump in the road. Kluber will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Red Sox on Sunday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
