Indians starter Corey Kluber made history in the fifth inning Sunday against the White Sox …

Kluber struck out 13 batters on the day, surpassing his previous career-high of 11. The 28-year-old right-hander has 48 strikeouts in 45 total innings (seven starts) this season with a decent 3.60 ERA.

    Congrats on such an impressive performance! To me, it underscores just how terrific Tom Seaver’s 10 K’s in a row remains.

    And they still LOST.

    It was a historic game, because Corey not only shattered the Indians franchise record with 7 strikeouts in a row, but he also broke the strikeout record by fanning 13 men. George Kattaras also became the first Indians hitter to hit 2 Home Runs in his forst 2 ABs as an Indian. But at the end of the day, Indians lost because Jon Axford couldn’t throw strikes, and when he did, the ball went over the wall for a HR. Disappointing ending.

    Great. Just great. If Dolan finds out how good Kluber is throwing, he’ll probably get traded. Let’s cool it off there, ace.

    Great! White Sox win!
