Gray Shuts Out Tribe to End First Half; Athletics 2, Indians 0

Corey Kluber dominated again on Sunday afternoon, allowing just two runs in eight innings, but Sonny Gray was even better, allowing just two hits in his third career shutout in a 2-0 Oakland win.

Despite dropping the final two against Oakland, the Indians still have won nine of their last 14 games entering the All-Star break.

Kluber fell to 4-10 but again fell victim to poor run support; Kluber, by WAR, FIP, strikeouts, K/9 IP and other measures, remains one of the top pitchers in the league.

David Murphy robbed a Stephen Vogt homer in the first, but Vogt’s two-run shot in the fourth was all Oakland needed with Gray pitching.

Giovanny Urshela also made a great defensive play in the first.

W: Sonny Gray (10-3)

L: Corey Kluber (4-10)

HR: Stephen Vogt (14, 4th inning off Kluber 1 on, 0 Out)
