Indians first team in history to have four pitchers strike out 200 in a season

The Cleveland Indians have become the first team in Major League Baseball history to have four pitchers reach 200 strikeouts in a season.

Mike Clevinger hit that mark with his fourth strikeout against the Boston Red Sox on Saturday night, joining fellow starters Carlos Carrasco (217), Trevor Bauer (215) and Corey Kluber (205).

Despite having a combined 837 strikeouts among that foursome, the Indians as a team rank fifth in the majors in whiffs, behind the Astros (1,600), Yankees (1,527), Dodgers (1,485) and Red Sox (1,471) entering Saturday.

The AL Central champion Indians, with the help of Clevinger's six strikeouts overall, beat the Red Sox, 5-4 in extra innings.
