Trevor Bauer struck out nine Astros batters on Wednesday to run his season strikeout total to 102, and joining Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar as Indians pitchers in triple digits. No other team in major-league history has had four players with 100 or more strikeouts as few as 84 games into a season. Prior to this year, the fewest games that any team needed to have four pitchers accumulate 100 strikeouts was 89, by the Dodgers in 1960 (Don Drysdale, Sandy Koufax, Johnny Podres and Stan Williams)
Right now the Indians are 40-44, three games behind the Tigers. Hmmm, I wonder if the Tigers need to watch out below?
