Here’s to a great week!
Indians 4, Mariners 2
Mr. Corey Kluber earned his 18th win of the year, allowing just two unearned runs over seven innings. The Tribe’s ace struck out ten and lowered his season ERA to a measly 2.27. Jose Ramirez homered for the good guys, while Edwin Encarnacion and Jason Kipnis added RBI doubles.

I know who I’m voting for AL Cy Young (in a really cool internet poll, of course). From Jordan Bastian:
And, while Kluber shrugs off questions about a possible second American League Cy Young Award, his teammates will do the talking for him.
"He's the Cy Young," Jason Kipnis said. "I think he's clearly the Cy Young. That doesn't take anything away from [Red Sox ace] Chris Sale. I think he's clearly the No. 2 and would be the Cy Young any other year that Corey Kluber's not pitching like this."
