Max Scherzer, Corey Kluber win Cy Young awards again

Boston Red Sox's Chris Sale works against Toronto Blue Jays during the fourth inning in Toronto on Saturday

- Washington Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer has been named the National League Cy Young Award victor for the second consecutive year. He went 16-6 in 2017 with a 2.51 ERA and 268 strikeouts, which put him second in the league after Sale's 308.

Scherzer also won the 2013 American League Cy Young - given to the best pitcher in each league - while pitching for the Detroit Tigers. Max Scherzer was voted to his second consecutive Cy Young Award on the NL side.

This brings Scherzer even with Clayton Kershaw, who finished second in the NL voting.

Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen finished fifth overall with two third-place votes, five fourth-place votes and six fifth-place votes.

As many as 20 passengers wearing life jackets were brought ashore with the help of trained swimmers and local fishermen. Rajappa also announced an ex gratia of Rs 8 lakh to each of the families of the deceased.

Scherzer enters high company with his third Cy Young award. It's his second Cy Young, having won in 2014, and he received 28 of the 30 available first place votes (with Sale getting the other two). Kershaw was hoping to become just the fourth pitcher in history to win the Cy Award a fourth time. Scherzer's teammate with the Washington Nationals, Stephen Strasburg, finished third.

Kluber, meanwhile, led all major league starters with a 2.25 ERA and tied Kershaw for the major league lead in wins with 18. Although Kluber surrendered six home runs, he allowed only 10 earned runs and 23 hits.

While Kershaw and Strasburg lost substantial time due to injuries, Scherzer ascended to the status of Cy Young favorite. But over the course of his final 23 starts of the regular season, Kluber posted a 1.62 ERA with a.175/.213/.283 opponents' slash. Still, the Nationals' second ace rode a dominant second half to the best overall season of his career, going 15-4 with a 2.52 ERA and 1.015 WHIP. Greg Maddux (1992-95) and Randy Johnson (1999-2002) each won four years in a row. Kluber had 204 points, Sale had 126 and Severino had 73.
