We watched Corey Kluber get polished off by the A's in Oakland in his first start of 2014.

Today (April 24th), facing the perennially enigmatic Royals, Kluber threw a four-hitter in a 5-1 Cleveland victory, striking out eleven. (He looked almost as good as he does in the watercolor--at left--by Dmitry Samarov.)

That's complete game #13 on the year.

And, as David Pinto noted over at Baseball Musings, it adds another 10+ K performance to what is currently the highest percentage of such games since the mid-60s.
