Shane Bieber broke the MLB record for strikeouts in the first two pitches of the pitchers’ season, while the Cleveland Indians beat the Minnesota Twins 2-0.
Indian pitcher Bieber knocked out 13 of eight innings to inspire Cleveland’s victory in Minneapolis on Thursday.
After beating 14 against the Kansas City Royals on the opening day, Bieber’s total of 27 from two outings equaled the record set by Karl Spooner of the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1954.
According to STATS, Bieber is also the first pitcher in the history of the American League to have more than 13 strikeouts and zero points allowed in back-to-back starts at any time.
“I have never been a great launcher, especially through minors. The book about me was a step to contact, this and that. I have made some adjustments over the past two years and have started seeing some swings and shortcomings,” he said Bieber.
In the meantime, the New York Yankees have extended their winning streak after passing the Baltimore Orioles 8-6 thanks to the slacker of the All-Star Aaron Judge.
The judge hit a huge three-shot humerus atop the ninth inning as the Yankees claimed command to see the Orioles at Camden Yards in Baltimore.
It was the Yankees’ 18th consecutive victory over the Orioles when the historic New York streak marked its third consecutive AL East lead.
The multi-homer game of Cabrera
Miguel Cabrera released the 40th multi-homer game of his career and for the first time since September 2016. Cabrera went solo in the first and eighth innings, but the Detroit Tigers lost 5-3 against the Royals.
Christian Vazquez clubbed a couple of homers while the Boston Red Sox defeated the New York Mets 4-2 to stay warm.
The Los Angeles Angels lost 8-5 to the Seattle Mariners but Shohei Ohtani destroyed a three-shot humerus in the ninth inning. Ohtani’s 42nd home career in MLB tied him to fifth place by a player born in Japan.
Ryu, Jays wrestler, fights
Off-season recruit Ryu Hyun-jin has been hit by Washington citizens. The Toronto Blue Jays pitcher, in his second start after joining the Los Angeles Dodgers with a four-year deal of $ 80 million, allowed five points and nine wins in 4.3 innings while the World Series champions won 6-4 . Ryu was second in the Cy Young National League vote last year, but his ERA is now at 8.00.

Arizona Diamondbacks right-wing defender Kole Calhoun – the 2015 Gold Glove winner – produced this beautiful spearfishing against the Dodgers, who won 6-3.
