It was his 14th career double-digit strikeout game, but his first since Oct. 3, 2010.
Lackey is now 5-5 with a 2.99 ERA and a 1.200 WHIP. When he last pitched in 2011, Lackey was 12-12 with a 6.41 ERA and a 1.619 WHIP.
Remember last season when Clemens pitched for the Sugar Land Skeeters in the independent Atlantic League? He was joined Kazmir who was 3-6 in 14 starts with a 5.36 ERA and a 1.672 WHIP. Kazmir was in Sugar Land because in 2010-11 he had a 9-15 record with the Angels with a 6.17 ERA. And then he pitched for Salt Lake City in 2011 and went 0-5 with a 17.02 ERA and 14 walks in 15.1 innings.
Last night, pitching for the Indians, Kazmir took a no-hitter into the 7th before allowing a leadoff double to Manny Machado (who else?). That was the only hit that Kazmir allowed in seven innings giving up one unearned run and one walk.
Kazmir picked up a no-decision but he’s 4-4 with a 4.83 ERA and a 1.420 WHIP for the Tribe this season.
