CLEVELAND (AP) Corey Kluber's stiff neck cleared up a day too soon for the Toronto Blue Jays.
Cleveland's ace struck out a season-high 14 in 7 2/3 innings and showed no signs of the neck problem that pushed back him back in the rotation with another dominating performance in the Indians' 8-1 victory Sunday.
"It wasn't anything that was really concerning," said Kluber, whose regular turn in the rotation was scheduled for Friday. "Just needed a couple of extra days to get to the spot I wanted to be. I didn't think about it at all."
