In a winning streak filled with blowouts, this was anything but.
In Thursday night's exciting game, the Cleveland Indians found themselves down 1-0 after the second inning. The team has also played incredibly well since it lost its last game, outscoring opponents by a grand sum of 139-35.
"This team has no quit whatsoever".
During the Indians run to the World Series a year ago, James appeared to hop off the Yankees bandwagon and started to rep the baseball team of his hometown. The idea of anyone betting upwards of six-figures on a regular season game is absurd on its face, and it's unlikely you could find a book willing to take $800,000 in liability on a single baseball outcome. "A great atmosphere. It felt like a playoff game". The hit was Ramirez's fourth of the game. He ripped a single down the right field line, driving in Jose Ramirez and giving Cleveland its 22nd win in a row.
Closer Cody Allen worked a scoreless 10th, and Cleveland went back to work in the bottom of the inning. The incredible string of wins is tied for the most in American League history and they are the first since the 2002 Oakland A's to capture so many consecutive victory.
But shortstop Francisco Lindor saved the day with a double to deep left field, which brought in a run and sent the game to extra innings.
"Right man, right spot. You compare us to a city like NY or Los Angeles or Chicago and there are just some things that we can't match up on in terms of population and some of the wealth of the population". I've had my own 27-game winning streak in the National Basketball Association before. We have a lot of things going for us that make it not like that.
Herrera blew a save chance for the fifth time this season. "It was, I kinda knew we were gonna score". "But when you're at home, you're a hit away". Vargas is winless in each of his past two starts against Cleveland, allowing four runs in both starts.
The Cleveland Indians added a walk-off win to a streak that has had a little bit of everything.
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. There's a reason it's been 15 years since any team has won 21 straight games; it's been over 80 years since a team won 21 straight. Abraham Almonte, after a long run, attempted a sliding catch but missed.
The ultimate goal, of course, is to get back to the World Series and win their first championship in 68 years. Salvador Perez is 18-for-38 and Eric Hosmer 8-for-41 with two home runs versus Tomlin, who is 10-5 with a 3.92 ERA in 24 appearances (20 starts) versus Kansas City - 1-1, 1.93 in three starts this season. He had hit a soft liner to right-center that Lorenzo Cain, a Gold Glove center fielder, fielded cleanly.
The Indians still haven't lost since August 23 against the Boston Red Sox, with their last road loss coming on August 20 against the Royals.
