I do think theres a question

HOUSTON -- Corey Kluber keeps giving the Indians strong starts when they need them. Christoph Kramer Germany Jersey . The right-hander struck out a career-high 14 in seven innings and Cleveland halted its four-game losing streak with a 4-2 win over the Houston Astros on Tuesday night. Kluber (16-9) allowed one run and seven hits to earn his third straight win. His previous high for strikeouts was 13 against the Chicago White Sox on May 4. He said the strikeouts came down to executing pitches at the right time. "I didnt consistently execute throughout the entire game, but when I needed to make big pitches, I was able to execute," Kluber said. "Yan (Gomes) did a good job back there, leading me through the early part of the game when I didnt quite have that good of stuff." Kluber has allowed four runs over his last 24 1-3 innings with 29 strikeouts. Cleveland manager Terry Francona said his emerging ace looked as strong as ever. "He worked ahead," Francona said. "He usually starts the game out establishing his fastball command; today I think he had to work into it. ... But his stuff is just so late moving and going both directions. Pitching in and opening up away, theres a reason he had those strikeouts." Gomes two-run homer off Darin Downs in the sixth increased Clevelands lead to 4-1. Cody Allen got the last out in the eighth and pitched the ninth for his 21st save. Michael Bourn scored on Carlos Santanas groundout in the first, and the Indians went up 2-1 in the fourth when Lonnie Chisenhall scored on an error by Robbie Grossman after Gomes singled to left field. Houstons Jose Altuve broke Craig Biggios club record for hits in a season with his 211th of the year, a single up the middle in the seventh. Altuve tied the record with a double down the left-field line in the fifth. "When I was a kid growing up watching Craig Biggio and hundreds of players more, you know Biggio is second base," Altuve said. "He got the record. He got 3,000 hits. Hes going to be in the Hall of Fame sooner than later. For me to break the record is very important. I would like to have a career of at least 80 per cent of the success that Biggio did." The 18,381 in attendance gave Altuve a standing ovation for about a minute before he tipped his helmet in both instances. Fireworks went off in the seventh after the record-breaking hit. After the fifth inning, Altuve went over to Biggio, who was sitting with Nolan Ryan to the right of home plate, and shook his hand. "Its special for everybody, and special for me because I have known Jose for a long time," Houston interim manager Tom Lawless said. "I saw him start at the beginning, and for me to witness that tonight is pretty special." Marwin Gonzalez tied it at 1 in the first with an RBI single to score Altuve, who reached on a fielders choice. Alex Presleys RBI single in the eighth cut the Cleveland lead to 4-2. Nick Tropeano (1-1) gave up two runs -- one earned -- and four hits with four strikeouts in five innings. TRAINERS ROOM Indians: INF Zach Walters (right intercostal) had an MRI and "structurally hes good," Francona said. "They checked his ribs, things like that, so hes OK there. So we know its soft tissue; now theyve just got to see how he responds and I think the trainers think this might be pretty quick." ... OF Ryan Raburn (left knee) flew back to Cleveland to have an MRI on Wednesday. Astros: Rookie OF George Springer (left quadriceps) wont play again this season, Lawless said. Springer has been on the disabled list since July 20 with the injury. UP NEXT Indians RHP Carlos Carrasco will be looking to rebound Wednesday when he faces LHP Brett Oberholtzer. Carrasco took his first loss Friday since returning to the rotation in August. Oberholtzer lasted just 4 1-3 innings and allowed four earned runs in his most recent start Friday. Manuel Neuer Jersey . TSN Hockey Insiders Pierre LeBrun and Bob McKenzie both reported Thursday that there have been ongoing trade discussions between the Oilers and Los Angeles Kings over forward Sam Gagner. Thomas Muller Jersey . Smiths former Atlanta teammates were glad to hang on for an ugly win.Each week, The Reporters put their thumbs out to the good and the bad in the world of sports. This week they discuss Jason Collins ignoring homophobic slurs, Sam Tagesons big day with the San Jose Sharks, Alex Rodriguez in the news again, and Sidney Crosbys Hart Trophy case. Bruce Arthur, National Post My thumb is up to Jason Collins of the Brooklyn Nets. Remember Jason Collins? Big guy, sets screens, commits fouls, plays defence, and recently the first openly gay player in any of North Americas four major sports leagues. He never did much as a player; he still doesnt. And in his first 10 games since signing with Brooklyn, Collins hasnt been a distraction, hasnt created a media circus, and says that only one opposing player has thrown homophobic slurs his way. And how Collins reacted to that was important. He could have named names, damaged the guys reputation, and cost him a big league fine. Instead, in the manner of Jackie Robinson, Collins ignored the slurs. He just played, with dignity. By doing nothing Jason Collins showed that nameless idiot what mattered, and that it wasnt him. Steve Simmons, Sun Media My thumb is up to the San Jose Sharks, and not because theyre my pick to win the Stanley Cup. Well get to that in another show. This week the Sharks made the most meaningful transaction since the trade deadline. They signed 17-year-old Sam Tageson to a one-day contract, and turned one day into a lifetime of memories for many. Tageson was born with a debilitating heart condition that prevents strenuous activity. But against his doctors advice, he has never stopped playing hockey. The Sharks signed him to a one-day deal, had him practice with the teamm, dress with the club, hang around the players, and then skate out through that gigantic shark head and stand at the blue line for the national anthem. Andre Schurrle Germany Jersey. The crowd, the bench, the building, went crazy. For one night, there was crying in hockey and everybody loved it. Dave Naylor, TSN Radio 1050 My thumb is down to Alex Rodgriguez, who once again is embroiled in controversy, this time over supposed unpaid legal fees racked up while he was trying to defend himself from the season-long suspension. If you thought we could look forward to this baseball season to some respite from more A-Rod controversy, well, think again. Theres some disputing the legitimacy of this weeks reports, with suggestions that A-Rod fully intends to pay his bills. And since he has a net worth reported at more than 300 million, why wouldnt we give him the benefit of the doubt? Wait a minute … Alex Rodriguez? Benefit of the doubt? Oh, nevermind. Dave Hodge, TSN My thumb is up in agreement with Pittsburgh Penguins coach Dan Bylsma, who thinks Sidney Crosby is due to win the Hart Trophy for the second time, though I will take issue with Bylsma when he says there is "no question" that Crosby is the NHLs most valuable player. I do think theres a question – Im not sure why when the Penguins captain is running away with the scoring race and has appeared in all of Pittsburghs 70 games to lead the Pens to a certain Metropolitan Division title, but NHL watchers seem to want to consider other candidates. One problem with that - theres no answer to the question: who else should win? The next time you want Crosby to be better, name someone who is.
