Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis and starting pitcher Corey Kluber have been named Co-American League Players of the Week for the period ending June 16, 2013. Kipnis hit .524 (11-for-21) with two doubles, one home run, four runs batted in and five runs scored in six games over the week, topping the Major Leagues in batting average and on-base percentage (.593), and ranking second in the A.L. in hits and sixth in slugging percentage (.762). On the mound, Kluber went 2-0 with a 0.56 ERA, 11 strikeouts and three walks in 16.0 innings over a pair of starts. He led the Majors in innings pitched and was tied for first overall in wins. Kipnis was instrumental in an Indians’ 5-2 win over the Texas Rangers last week, hitting a home run, a singled, and a double for three of the Tribe’s 10 hits. On Sunday, Kluber held the Nationals offense at bay over 8.0 shutout innings, scattering seven hits with eight strikeouts and no walks as Cleveland blanked Washington, 2-0. This is the first weekly honor for both players as they become the third and fourth members of the Indians to be tabbed A.L. Player of the Week this season, joining teammates Ryan Raburn (period ending May 5) and Justin Masterson (period ending May 19). [Related: Tribe Weekend Wrapup: A Ode To Corey Kluber]
