Kluber fires 3-hitter as Indians blank Orioles 12-0

"I threw the fastball (to) both sides of the plate, and I think that opened up for the off-speed stuff when I needed to throw that".

Kluber (6-2) struck out 11 and walked none in his 12th career complete game and second shutout this season. He now has won three straight starts.

Orioles: 1B Chris Davis (oblique strain) will likely be sidelined through the All-Star break, manager Buck Showalter said.

"Between the breaking ball, cutter, two-seamer, the ball was moving all over the place", said Francona. "He had everything working".

Ramirez has now hit at least one double in seven straight games, a franchise record, and has raised his average almost 40 points in less than a week.

The Indians added a 12th run when Encarnacion scored on an error off of a grounder from outfielder Daniel Robertson in the top of the ninth inning.

In the fourth inning alone, they tallied four doubles off Bundy, who had never allowed more than three doubles in an entire game.

It even could have been worse as the Indians stranded 13.

British media name suspect in mosque attack
Neighbours in the Cardiff suburb where he had lived for several years described him as "aggressive" and "strange". He never caused us any real problems, but we could often hear him shouting from the other side of the street.

That, as much as anything else, really made it a ideal night for manager Terry Francona. We scored and then we kept at it. Bundy threw 100 pitches, 58 (58 percent) for strikes.

The Indians came in on a roll and entered the season as one of the favorites to go all the way this year, but Bundy said it had nothing to do with that.

"I didn't have anything", Bundy said. "It was just poor execution and pitches right down the middle in hitters counts tonight".

Santana and Austin Jackson had three RBI apiece for the AL Central leaders, whose recent surge has lifted them to a season-best six games over.500 (37-31). Jackson contributed a two-run double plus a bloop run-scoring single, and Santana added a two-run homer and a sacrifice fly. But with third baseman Jose Ramirez tearing the cover off balls and designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion finding his power stroke, the Indians have to like what they're seeing. Ramirez set a team record with his first double as he has hit doubles now in seven straight games.

After having a two-game Major League Baseball debut in 2015 without a home run, Sanchez got to 20 homers in his 49th game of the 2016 season. The 2014 AL Cy Young Award victor posted his third double-digit strikeout game over his last five outings and has recorded at least eight in six of his last seven outings. The right-hander gave up a first-inning single to Adam Jones, a single to Seth Smith in the sixth and a single to Hyun Soo Kim in the eighth. Rookie Jesse Winker, promoted from Class AAA Louisville earlier in the day to replace injured shortstop Zack Cozart, finished Cincinnati's three-run eighth with a bases-loaded single that drove in two to make it 6-3. Baltimore also used the weekend to get right, totaling 23 runs on Saturday and Sunday to take two of three at home from St. Louis to win a three-game series for the first time in June. The Orioles are 3-10 in their last 13 Tuesday games, 2-7 in Tillmans last 9 home starts and 0-5 in Tillmans last 5 starts. His pitching line was finalized when reliever Vidal Nuno surrendered a two-run homer to Carlos Santana.

"We did a lot of good things", Francona said. "It's contagious; one guy does it, it kind of seems like it trickles down in the order".

The Indians put left fielder Michael Brantley on the disabled list Monday due to a sprained right ankle.

Indians DH Edwin Encarnacion's fourth-inning double was career hit No. 1,500.
