CLEVELAND — Corey Kluber struck out a career-high 11 and pitched a four-hitter for his first complete game, and David Murphy and Asdrubal Cabrera drove in two runs apiece for the Indians. Kluber is 3-0 in four career starts against the Royals. Murphy and Cabrera delivered big hits in a five-run fifth off Bruce Chen, who controlled Cleveland for four innings. Chen retired 11 straight before Carlos Santana led off the fifth with a double, snapping an 0-for-16 slide with just his third hit in 48 at-bats.
