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

Baltimore Orioles vs. Cleveland Indians- 6/19/17 MLB Pick Odds and Prediction

Or as was the case on Monday, by the dozen - which was 11 more than Corey Kluber needed.

Mets pitcher Zack Wheeler got rocked, and not just by Bellinger. It was mostly overkill, of course, since Kluber (6-2) did not flinch on the way to his second shutout of the year.

Hector Rondon (2-1) pitched a scoreless inning for the win, and Davis struck out Wil Myers and got Hunter Renfroe to ground out with runners on second and third for his 14th save in 14 chances.

"There was nothing he [Bundy] could go to that he could depend on", Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

To cap it off, Kluber struck out the side in the ninth.

"Between the breaking ball, cutter, two-seamer, the ball was moving all over the place", said Francona. "He had everything working". A whopping 39.7 percent of Cleveland's 78 hits during the past six games have gone for extra bases and 14 have left the yard.

Bundy (7-6), who got off to a terrific start this season, suffered his fifth loss in seven games, though he had given up three runs or fewer in four of his previous six games.

The right-hander never threw more than 15 pitches in an inning and finished with a final line of 9 IP, 3 H, 0 R/ER, 0 BB, 11 K (108 pitches, 80 strikes, 74.1%, 12 groundouts, one flyout).

It even could have been worse as the Indians stranded 13. Manager Terry Francona said he is not exactly sure why this is happening but likes seeing the Indians playing better. "We scored and then we kept at it and put our foot on the gas".

Cleveland knocked out top Baltimore starter Dylan Bundy (7-6) after just 4 1/3 innings.

Nationals pitcher Tanner Roark lasted just 2 2/3 innings in Miami, allowing six runs on six hits.

Bundy simply could not throw strikes the way he's done it for much of this season. Like I said, it's contagious. "It was just poor execution and pitches right down the middle in hitters counts tonight".

Austin Jackson and Santana led the Indians with three RBIs apiece. J.J. Hardy and Trey Mancini each hit a two-run double, Schoop singled in a run and Machado delivered a two-run homer. Ramirez set a team record with his first double as he has hit doubles now in seven straight games.

MILWAUKEE - Andrew McCutchen hit a two-run homer, Gerrit Cole pitched seven strong innings and Pittsburgh beat Milwaukee. The Indians have hit at least one home run in each of their past eight games, dating back to June 12's opener against the Dodgers.

Ramirez started everything with his one-out double off Bundy in the fourth, and Edwin Encarnacion followed with another two-bagger for a 1-0 lead.

Later in the inning, Jackson lined a two-run double to left, which gave Cleveland a 4-0 lead.

Vidal Nuno replaced Bundy two batters later and allowed a two-run homer to Santana plus Jackson's bloop RBI double for the 8-0 lead in the fifth. We did a lot of good things. "One guy does it (then) it seems like it trickles down the order". The Orioles moved back LHP Zach Britton's rehab assignment to Tuesday night at Aberdeen (short-season team) because of the rain on Monday.

Indians: OF Michael Brantley was activated from the paternity list and immediately placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right ankle sprain.

Edwin Encarnacion doubled home Ramirez with the Indians' first run.
