Finishing a distant second was Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale, who earned two first-place votes and 28 second place votes for 126 points.

This generation of great MLB pitchers added to its trophy case Wednesday, as Max Scherzer of the Washington Nationals and Corey Kluber of the Cleveland Indians won the Cy Young award again in their respective leagues.

Scherzer went 16-6 for the Nationals and had a career-best 2.51 ERA this season.

After a sparkling first half of the season in which his first Cy Young looked like a lock, Sale faded over the final six weeks of the season while Kluber surged. He led the NL with 268 strikeouts and made his fifth consecutive All-Star appearance.

Kluber dominated after missing almost all of May with an injury, going 15-2 with a 1.62 ERA while holding opposing hitters to a.162 batting average from June to the end of September.

Sale pitched more innings and games and struck out more batters while Kluber bested Sale in ERA, WHIP and most other rate stats. Kluber took the loss in the decisive Game 5 after giving up three runs in 3.2 innings.

Once again, Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer is the National League Cy Young award victor.
