Blistering bats have Indians on a roll

The defending American League champs are starting to pull away from the pack by stringing together wins thanks to the strength of their offense.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Jose Ramirez has had one of the most amazing seven-game stretches in MLB history. He hit .576 and became the first player since 1900 with 14 extra-base hits over a seven-game span (10 doubles, a triple and three home runs). He raised his average from .279 to .318 and his slugging from .464 to .561. Wow.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Corey Kluber now has a 1.61 ERA with no home runs allowed in 4 starts since coming off the DL. Prior to his DL stint, Kluber had a 5.06 ERA with seven home runs allowed in six starts.

Kluber fires 3-hitter as Indians blank Orioles 12-0

Corey Kluber pitched a three-hitter for his fifth career shutout, Jason Kipnis and Carlos Santana homered and the Cleveland Indians overpowered the Baltimore Orioles 12-0 Monday night for their season-high sixth straight victory.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Beware the Indians. Cleveland got a complete-game shutout from Corey Kluber and 17 hits from a red-hot lineup to beat Baltimore for its sixth straight win. The streak comes at exactly the same time that the Tribe ripped off a franchise-record 14 wins last year to run away and hide from the AL Central. Looks like they're poised to do it again.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Safe to say Jose Ramirez is locked in. Fresh off being named AL Player of the Week, the Indians 3B has a triple and two doubles tonight against the Orioles. Ramirez has now doubled in a franchise-record seven straight games.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

The hot-hitting Indians - who've averaged eight runs a contest during their current five-game win streak - just knocked out Orioles starter Dylan Bundy after 4.1 innings. It's the first time all season that Bundy failed to last five frames.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Fours are wild at Camden Yards, where the Indians doubled four times during a four-run fourth inning against Orioles starter Dylan Bundy. It's the first time that Bundy's ever allowed more than three doubles in a game.
