Today he actually had four plate appearances without a strikeout. He didn't hit the ball out of the infield, but at least he hit the ball into fair territory three times along with a walk. Baby steps.Kluber rose to the occasion when we needed a quality start in the worst way. Too bad the bullpen blew the W for him. I'm pretty sure Brantley will never hit two HR's and a double in one game again, no matter how long he plays, so this win was kind of a fluke. But I'll take it any way I can get it. Chiz with two hits and a walk for the second game in a row, so it's coming together for him. He's been working deep into the count as opposed to swinging at everything in the general vicinity of the plate. He could be ready to go on a tear, or at least hold his own from here on out.
