CLEVELAND -- Corey Kluber allowed one run in 7 1/3 innings to win his fifth straight decision and lead the Cleveland Indians to a 7-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night.
Kluber (12-6), who hasn't lost since June 30, held the Reds to six hits, struck out seven and walked two as he continued a dominant stretch of pitching. His 17-inning scoreless streak ended, however, in the eighth on Brayan Pena's RBI double off reliever Nick Hagadone.
That also ended the right-hander's stretch of not allowing an earned run in 25 innings.
Lonnie Chisenhall hit a three-run homer in the fourth off Alfredo Simon (12-7). Yan Gomes hit a two-run homer in the eighth, and Cleveland won its fourth straight.
