Found August 05, 2013 on Cleveland Sports 360:
The Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Corey Kluber did one hell of a job keeping the Detroit Tigers off the scoreboard for 7-1/3 innings. He went out and he pitched his heart out to try to give the Indians a win in the first of four against the Tigers. For 8 innings it looked like the Indians were going to pull it off. The Indians had the lead going into the 9th inning with a 2-0 lead. They sent in their closer Chris Perez to do one thing and one thing only. That didn’t happen. Kluber sat in the Dug out watching as the Detroit Tigers took advantage of a Chris Perez that clearly didn’t have it tonight. The Indians closer closed the Tribes chance of a sweep over the Tigers. He gave up a 3 run homer that gave the Tigers a 4-2 lead that they would hold onto to steal the first game from the Indians. It was a shame to see it happen and the fans couldn’t believe their eyes. Kluber and the Indians fans were robbed. Klubber deserved the win and he didn’t get it. Sometimes you just have to w...
