NEW YORK — Cleveland's Corey Kluber won the AL Cy Young Award, edging Seattle's Felix Hernandez.

Kluber received 17 of 30 first-place votes and 169 points in balloting announced Wednesday by the Baseball Writers' Association of America. Hernandez got 13 firsts and 159 points, and Chris Sale of the Chicago White Sox was third with 78 points.

A 28-year-old right-hander, Kluber went 18-9 with a 2.44 ERA in his first full major league season with 269 strikeouts, two behind league leader David Price. Kluber had consecutive 14-strikeout games in September, the first to accomplish the feat since Arizona's Randy Johnson in 2004.

Kluber, who gets a $10,000 bonus, became Cleveland's fourth Cy Young winner, joining Gaylord Perry (1972), CC Sabathia (2007) and Cliff Lee (2008).

Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw was a unanimous winner in the NL voting.
