Indians Make History, Win 20th In A Row

WWWBrowns’ sophomore stand-outs Kizer vs Watson and Tribe train rolling While We’re Waiting

Francisco Lindor broke two bats, borrowed one from a teammate, and hit a home run.It's been like that for the Cleveland Indians of late.

The Indians are now just a victory shy of tying the 2002 Oakland Athletics squad for the American League record for most consecutive wins.

The 1916 New York Giants are generally cited as the all-time record-holders with 26 consecutive wins, but they did have a tie mixed into a 27-game unbeaten stretch. "Tonight, we get to focus on it because we won".

The 20th win was a 2-0 win over Detroit at Progressive Field in Cleveland.

"He's one of the best in the game", Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said.

Detroit rifled through four pitchers. The right-hander moved into a tie with Boston's Chris Sale for the league lead in wins and has won nine straight decisions. We're aware of it just because of the attention it gets, but it's not something we're focusing on. "I'd like to say we're going home with the trophy this time, but my only concern is that every team eventually hits some sort of slump, so I'd nearly like to see us hit our slump sooner than later". And this is not even to mention his defense, which continues to be elite level in the middle of the Indians infield, alongside his Dominican second base counterpart, Jose Ramirez.

Blaine Hardy, in relief of Boyd, started the sixth inning and was greeted by a double by Carlos Santana into the left-center field gap.

That now will mean that the conversation about single payer, Medicare-for-all is at the heart of the Democratic Party". "We do. At least eight Senate Democrats have signed on as co-sponsors of the Sanders bill , dubbed Medicare for All.

Drew VerHagen relieved Hardy and struck out Yandy Diaz on three pitches for the second out. During the streak, the Indians have hit more home runs (40) than runs given up (32).

There was a brief delay at exactly 2 p.m. when the sprinklers in left field started spraying. Lindor is also just the third shortstop in baseball history to hit 30 homers before the age of 24, joining Alex Rodriguez (twice) and Nomar Garciaparra.

In 57 career at-bats against Kluber, Cabrera has six home runs, with 12 runs-batted-in.

You can't blame Francona for not wanting to take any chances. Now Francona's team was one game away from another Series.

Kluber went the full nine innings, gave up five hits and rung up eight Detroit Tigers at the dish. I shed a tear today as I watched Lonnie Chisenhall make the final catch to etch my favorite sports team into the record books, and throughout the whole time I could only think of one person; my dad.

Their 11 defeats on the trot marked their worst losing streak in 25 years. They have lost six straight meetings and have been shutout in three of them. He has given up 10 runs over 13.2 innings.

Hitting a home run with an 0-2 count is not something Indians catcher Roberto Perez had done before in his Major League career, but that changed in the bottom of the seventh inning. However, it's a bit of a small sample size as the Indians have only had 34 plate appearances with the bases loaded in their previous 20 games.
