Kluber (4-10) was a tough-luck loser Sunday, going eight innings allowing just two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out six in a 2-0 loss to the A's.

A home run by Stephen Vogt in the fourth inning accounted for the only runs scored in the contest, as Kluber was stuck in a pitching duel with Sonny Gray all afternoon. The 29-year-old did strike out six batters in the contest to up his total to 154, but the 2014 Cy Young award winner hasn't found his stride from last season. Kluber (3.37 ERA, 1.11 WHIP) will take the mound against Cincinnati to start the second-half of the season

Kluber tossed 6.2 shutout innings Tuesday against the Astros, allowing five hits and two walks while fanning seven and picking up his fourth win of the season.

It was Kluber's first win since May 28, as he finally got some run support, albeit only two runs. He came in receiving the second-lowest run support average (2.43 runs) in the majors, which is why fantasy owners have to be hopeful that things can turn and he can offer even more value in the second half. Even with a 4-9 record, Kluber has added plenty of fantasy value, as his 148 strikeouts lead the majors. He will start the Indians' final game of the first half Sunday against the A's.

Kluber struck out 14 over eight innings Thursday in Tampa, but also gave up four runs (three earned) on seven hits and a walk.

He didn't receive a decision for his trouble, as this game ended up taking 10 innings to decide. Nonetheless, he continues to pile up the double-digit-strikeout games, as Thursday's was his second in a row and fifth in his last 10 starts. Kluber just needs to avoid the one or two bad innings that seem to dog him every start. He holds a solid 1.16 WHIP over his last seven starts, but a non-matching 3.86 ERA, as Kluber continues to be haunted by a low strand rate and high BABIP.

Kluber notched a quality start, allowing three runs on seven hits, walking one and striking out 10 over seven innings, but came away with a no-decision in a game Baltimore would win 4-3 Friday night.

Kluber (3-9, 3.66 ERA) pitched well enough to deserve a win, but as has happened so often this year, the run support just wasn't there. Coming into this game, his mates were averaging barely two runs per game in his starts, so that balky record should improve if things start going his way.

Kluber lasted seven innings, but took the loss Saturday against the Rays with four runs allowed and six strikeouts.

Saturday's loss pushes Kluber down 3-9 in 2015 and four straight since the beginning of June. While Kluber and his disappointing 3.65 ERA are a part of that, it definitely doesn't help that he ranks 106th out of 107 in MLB run support with 2.20 runs per start. It's highly probable that stat regresses to the mean with time.

Kluber allowed four runs on nine hits and a walk to go with nine strikeouts in eight innings Wednesday against the Royals.

With Wednesday's loss, Kluber dropped to 0-3 against the Royals this season. The reigning Cy Young winner struck out nine, giving him 105 strikeouts for the season and making him the quickest Indians pitcher to eclipse 100 since Sam McDowell in 1970. Kluber's next outing will be Tuesday against Seattle.

Kluber struck out 13 in seven innings Thursday, giving up three runs on seven hits and a walk against the Mariners.

Kluber (3-5) gave up a pair of home runs to Mike Zunino in the third and Dustin Ackley in the sixth, but other than that, Kluber was dominant. Eight of the final nine outs recorded by Kluber came via strikeout, including getting Nelson Cruz swinging for the final out of the seventh with a runner on. The reigning AL Cy Young award winner improved to 3-0 with 50 strikeouts and two walks in his last four starts. Kluber's next start will be against the reeling Royals on Wednesday.
