Dominant pitcher: Kluber wins 5th straight decision; Indians roll past Reds 7-1

ASSOCIATED PRESS

CLEVELAND — Corey Kluber allowed one run in 7 1-3 innings to win his fifth straight decision and lead the Cleveland Indians to a 7-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night.

Kluber (12-6), who hasn’t lost since June 30, held the Reds to six hits, struck out seven and walked two, as he continued a dominant stretch of pitching.

Kluber’s 17-inning scoreless streak ended in the eighth on Brayan Pena’s RBI double off reliever Nick Hagadone. That also ended the right-hander’s stretch of not allowing an earned run at 25 innings.

Lonnie Chisenhall hit a three-run homer in the fourth off Alfredo Simon (12-7). Yan Gomes hit a two-run homer in the eighth as Cleveland won its fourth straight.
