CLEVELAND (AP) Shane Bieber struck out a career-high 15 in his first major league complete game and the Cleveland Indians routed the Baltimore Orioles 10-0 on Sunday.

A day after being held to one hit, the Orioles were overmatched against Bieber (3-2).

The 23-year-old Bieber gave up five hits, didn't walk anyone and threw 107 pitches. He bounced back from allowing four home runs against the Chicago White Sox in his last start.

Bieber received a loud ovation from the crowd of 21,377 when he took the mound for the ninth inning. He struck out Dwight Smith Jr., retired Joey Rickard on a groundout and whiffed Chris Davis to end the game.

Bieber's strong outing came the day after Adam Plutko held Baltimore to one run in six innings. The Indians are relying on the two young right-handers with Corey Kluber and Mike Clevinger out with injuries.

Carlos Santana hit an RBI single in the first, then led off the third with his seventh home run of the season.

Cleveland took three of four from the Orioles. Baltimore has lost nine of 11 and has allowed a major league-leading 94 home runs.

Yefry Ramirez (0-2) struggled in his first start of the season, giving up four earned runs in 3 1/3 innings.

Mike Freeman had a two-run double in the seventh while Oscar Mecardo had his first major league RBI with a sixth-inning double. Carlos Gonzalez, Roberto Perez and Jose Ramirez also drove in runs for the Indians.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Indians: Clevinger (strained muscle in upper back) threw 35 pitches in a bullpen session Saturday. He's expected to increase his workload in upcoming bullpen work over the next several days.

UP NEXT

Orioles: RHP Andrew Cashner (4-2, 4.10 ERA) will be making his second consecutive start against the New York Yankees in the opener of a four-game home series Monday. He allowed two ruins in six innings in his last start, but got the loss.

Indians: RHP Carlos Carrasco (4-3, 4.18 ERA) is scheduled to make his seventh career start against Oakland in the opener of a three-game set Monday. Carrasco will be looking to extend his streak of 12 consecutive scoreless innings.
