From All-Star MVP to ace, and Shane Bieber is only getting better.
Bieber struck out 14 over six scoreless innings in a historic outing as the Cleveland Indians beat the Kansas City Royals 2-0 in their delayed home opener on Friday night.
The 25-year-old passed Bob Gibson and Lon Warneke for most strikeouts without allowing a run on Opening Day in MLB history.
The 14 strikeouts also set a club record for Opening Day and were the most in the majors in an opener since Hall of Famer Randy Johnson also fanned 14 on March 31, 1996.
Bieber was just one strikeout shy of the record for an opener held by Washington's Camilo Pascual in 1960.
