Indians run historic streak to 20 consecutive wins

For Lindor, it was home run number 30, a mark that no Indians shortstop had ever reached in a single season.

The New York Giants were unbeaten in 26 games during the 1916 season, but there was a tie game sandwiched in the middle of the steak.

The Indians are also tied with the 1935 Chicago Cubs for the second longest winning streak in major league history.

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

Kluber added eight strikeouts over nine innings without a walk and five hits. Teammate Abraham Almonte obliged. So I'll say Lindor. "I ran out of bats. I understand what he was trying to do, I just would've preferred he swung the bat".

There was one problem, however, with the replacement.

The 23-year old said the milestone essentially came down to being healthy for a full season, and again dispelled the idea of a "power-hitter" label until he hits 50 round-trippers in a season.

Despite lackluster numbers with all bases occupied, the Indians are still managing to win ball games.

The crowd of 21,259 roared in the ninth inning as Cody Allen recorded his 26th save.

"There isn't anywhere else in the world I'd rather be", Deas said, smiling, as he and a group of friends watched the action unfold from the standing lounge area in the right-field corner of the lower concourse. These three pitchers are firing on all cylinders as of late and are big contributors to the Indians' 183 strikeouts since August 24. Fox Sports tweeted "The @Indians tie the Major League Baseball record for most consecutive games with a win". Trailing behind Cleveland are the Minnesota Twins with a record of 74-69. "What consumes us is the daily kind of schedule and game we have to get ready for". It included nine double-headers and, an article in the Spring 2014 Baseball Research Journal notes, during the September 7-30 run, the Giants actually played 29½ games.

Ramirez went 4-for-4 in a 2-1 win over the Yankees in Game 6 and had five extra-base hits in an 11-1 win over the Tigers in Game 11.

First inning or not, it turned out to be the pivotal moment in the game. Perez, leading off the inning, hit a 3-2 pitch over the left field wall to give Cleveland a 2-1 lead.

Juan Minaya (3-2) pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings to pick up the victory. "Everyone goes out there and tries to do whatever it takes to win that day", Lindor told an on-field reporter. "We know we have the talent to do things like this". He hasn't pitched since August 21 and is on the disabled list for the second time this season with the injury.

"Even if he just hits the ball to the right side, he gets the guy over anyway". He's been on the DL since August 9, but is hitting in the batting cages and throwing.

The Dodgers are the first team in history to both win 15 of 16 games and lose 15 of 16 games in the same season, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
