During that stretch, Kluber made two starts in which he allowed no runs in 16 innings and struck out 17. Opposing batters mustered just a .148 average against him.
His win on Sunday moved him into a four-way tie for the MLB lead in victories with Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke and Zach Davies – all with 17.
He has not allowed a run in 22 consecutive innings, which is tied for the third-longest streak in the American League this year.
This is Kluber’s fourth time being named AL Player of the Week — the second time this year. He was also named AL Pitcher of the Month in June and August of this year.
On the season, Kluber is 17-4 with a 2.35 ERA — the lowest among starters. He also has struck out 252 — second-best in the AL — and walked 34 in 27 games, all starts.
Two other Indians starts have earned 16 wins thus far — Trevor Bauer (16-9, 4.41 ERA) and Carlos Carrasco (16-6, 3.48 ERA).
Having already clinched the AL Central title, Cleveland (93-57) owns the best record in the American League and second best in baseball. The Los Angeles Dodgers are tops at 96-53.
The Indians begin a West Coast trip on Tuesday night when they open at three-game series with the Los Angeles Angles. That will be followed by a weekend series in Seattle. Then the Tribe will have an off day Monday before hosting the Minnesota Twins in a series that begins Tuesday night at Progressive Field.
