Fernandez whiffs 14 as Marlins beat Indians 10-0

Posted: Updated:

MIAMI (AP) - The strikeouts keep coming for rookie right-hander Jose Fernandez, while the winning streak has ended for the Cleveland Indians.

Fernandez pitched eight innings and struck out 14, the most by an NL pitcher this season, to help Miami beat the Indians 10-0, snapping their 8-game win streak. Miami's All-Star became the first major league pitcher to strike out at least 13 in consecutive games since Randy Johnson in 2004. He's the first rookie to do so since Kerry Wood in 1998.

Fernandez (8-5) set a Marlins record for the most strikeouts in consecutive starts. He had 13 Sunday in a win over Pittsburgh.

Logan Morrison provided all the support Fernandez needed with four hits and four RBIs.

Ubaldo Jimenez (8-6) needed 107 pitches to get through four innings. He allowed five runs, two earned.
