Shane Bieber has tied the major league record for strikeouts in a pitcher’s first two starts of the season. Bieber punched out 13 Twins over eight shutout innings and the Indians won 2-0. Bieber fanned 14 over six scoreless innings on Friday against Kansas City. His 27 strikeouts in the two games matched the record set by Karl Spooner of the Brooklyn Dodgers in September of 1954. Bieber allowed only three singles in his eight innings and did not walk a batter. Francisco Lindor supplied the Indians’ only offense with a two-run homer in the third inning.
