CLEVELAND, Ohio — Triston McKenzie set a Cleveland Indians franchise record and came up one short of the American League record with his eight consecutive strikeouts Monday against the Chicago White Sox.

When McKenzie fanned Jake Lamb to lead off the sixth inning at Progressive Field he set a new team mark, breaking Corey Kluber’s record from 2014.

Kluber struck out seven straight White Sox batters on May 4, 2013.

Doug Fister’s nine straight strikeouts for the Tigers on Sept. 27, 2012 against Kansas City is the AL record for a starting pitcher. McKenzie’s eight ties several other AL pitchers, including Nolan Ryan of the Angels against Boston, July 9, 1972; and Roger Clemens of Boston vs. Seattle, April 29, 1986.

The major league record of 10 straight by a starter is held by the Mets’ Tom Seaver against San Diego on April 22, 1970.
