Close Call, But Indians Pass Cubs, Set Sights On Longest MLB Winning Streak

Bengals replace their offensive coordinator...NFL seeks quick reinstatement of Elliott suspension...

"It was exciting", Minor told Fox Sports. The sport's "signal-to-noise" ratio is so low that even its most hallowed accomplishments, such as ideal and four-home-run games, can be achieved by players with relatively modest resumes. And the pitchers would surely hold the Royals in place; the staff had combined for a 1.58 ERA and 200 strikeouts over the 199 innings of the streak.

The Indians, who won in electrifying fashion Thursday night, scoring runs in the bottom of the ninth inning and bottom of the tenth to win it, had no such magic on Friday. They are now second behind the 1916 New York Giants, who had a 26-game winning streak.

KC Reliever Kelvin Herrera continues to have a rough season. Since clubs of Cleveland's calibre come along only infrequently, streaks of this length are rightfully rare. While Los Angeles still has the best record in Major League Baseball, the Indians now look like the better team. They lost in Game 5 of the American League Division Series to the Minnesota Twins. Cleveland had more home runs than runs allowed (37) in this stretch. He became the 13th player with five extra-base hits in a game and first for Cleveland since catcher Kelly Shoppach in 2008.

The Indians are back in action on Thursday night, looking to extend their streak to 22 games in a matchup against the Kansas City Royals.

DENVER - Tyler Chatwood pitched into the sixth inning and drove in his first runs of the season, Nolan Arenado homered and Colorado beat San Diego. He struck out on a pitch in the dirt to officially seal the end to Cleveland's 22-game win streak.

Kansas City enters with a 72-74 overall record and 33-38 on the road, while Cleveland is 91-56 and 43-29 at home. Winning 22 games in a row will do that to you.

For the better part of a month, the Indians had no equals.

The Royals needed just one swing of the bat to draw even with the Indians at 1-1 in the top of the second inning.

If you've been asleep for the past three weeks and are just now waking up, the Cleveland Indians have just put the finishing touches on the longest winning streak since nearly all of the United States got electricity and indoor plumbing. If the Indians win steak were a hitter, it would be Willie Mays. While Jose Altuve (.348/.409/.559, 6.9 fWAR) is still the clear cut candidate for the AL MVP this season, Ramirez is certainly the MVP of the Indians' streak.

The Cleveland Indians are headed to the postseason in style. And during the past three weeks, it has delivered a convincing closing argument.

The last time a team made it to 20 straight wins, they got a best-selling book and a pretty solid sports movie out of it.

It's a good time be a Cleveland Indians fan!

However, only the best and those who separate themselves from the rest, have the opportunity to play in the World Series.
