Kluber gave up two earned runs on three hits and two walks with seven strikeouts over 7.1 innings Monday against the Astros.

He took a no-hitter into the sixth inning before the Astros were able to manufacture a run, that would prove to be all they needed as the Indians were held scoreless on Opening Day. Kluber looked like his typical dominant self for much of the game, and certainly pitched well enough to win. The defending Cy Young award winner will go for his first win of 2015 on Sunday against the Tigers.

Kluber has been named the 2014 American League Cy Young Award winner, ESPN.com reports.

Kluber's 269 strikeouts were just two shy of David Price for the AL lead, and the 28-year-old also posted the league's third best ERA (2.44) and sixth best WHIP (1.09). His 18 wins were tied for the AL lead, further helping his case for beating out both Felix Hernandez and Chris Sale for the award. After the best season of his career, the right-hander will join southpaw Clayton Kershaw in the 2014 class of Cy Young Award winners.
