"I tried to talk him into letting me go back out, but I also understand his point of view of not wanting me to push it to where it's going to make things worse," said Kluber, who allowed two earned runs and five hits in four innings. "So, I'm not going to question him. I tried to state my case and ultimately he makes the call, so it is what it is."
"It was nice," said Kluber, who couldn't remember the last time he pitched nine innings. "I really wasn't trying to make a bigger deal out of it than going out there and getting three more outs. Maybe that's why it worked out."
