Indians Doing Their Talking On The Diamond

Indians close in on 1935 Cubs' long-standing consecutive wins mark

Scott Spencer feels like the Indians current 21-game winning streak has them destined to get revenge on the Cubs and to hoist the World Series trophy for the first time since 1948. It snapped their sports-world-captivating winning streak at 22. Looking at Cleveland's starters and relievers together, they've tossed 199 innings of 1.58 ERA baseball.

The Indians' incredible stretch of dominance ended with a 4-3 loss to the Kansas City Royals on Friday night at Progressive Field.

Despite what Aisen said, the game was not meaningless, as the the Indians' record breaking streak has propelled them to the top of the American League standings and brought them very close to clinching their second consecutive AL Central crown. (Confusingly enough, however, players' individual stats from the pre-rainout innings were still counted.) So the Giants replayed the rained-out game by scheduling a doubleheader the next day, and they won.

Cleveland had no such qualifiers to this streak.

Time ran out on the Cleveland Indians' historic run Friday night.

Francisco Lindor hit a game-tying, two-run double in the ninth inning, and Jay Bruce followed with a walk-off double in the 10th. However, Tomlin struck out Alcides Escobar and Gordon to end the inning.

A sellout crowd of 34,025 rose and saluted their heroes, who returned the favor. As the fans stood and cheered, Indians players and personnel emerged from the dugout to acknowledge.

In the American League both "Smokey Joe" Wood (Red Sox) and Walter Johnson (Washington Senators) set the American League record with 16 straight wins.

Jose Ramirez led off the 10th with a hard hit into right-center off Brandon Maurer (2-2) that he turned into a double with a head-first slide. Hosmer led off with a walk, and he went to third on a single by Salvador Perez. Though it's not like the Indians have much to complain about.

Fournette, Bortles lead Jaguars past Texans
And lining up with Watt for the Houston Texans to rush quarterback Blake Bortles are Jadeveon Clowney and Whitney Mercilus. I have had high hopes for the Jags coming into the last couple of seasons, only to have it blow up in my face in week one.

The Marlins will open a three-game series against the Brewers that was moved from Marlins Park to Milwaukee because of Hurricane Irma.

"I don't think anything's over".

"Who would've ever thought that we'd be in this situation?" The hot streak has improved the Indians' won-lost record to 91-56, first in the American League and second in baseball to the Los Angeles Dodgers who, despite a awful September that has been a near mirror image of Cleveland's good fortunes, still sit atop the table at 94-52.

Or did they tie the Major League record?

"He threw a lot of pitches", Francona said. "We showed up today to win". We got the winning run to the plate.

Oddsmakers made Tampa Bay an underdog in all but four games of that win streak. "Common sense says you'll lose a game".

He's spent the last nine years playing in China and helped the Beijing Ducks win three championships.

The magnitude of this streak will not be diminished if the team doesn't win it all in October.
