After close call, Indians look for win No. 23 on streak

After Cleveland tied it at 2-2 in the bottom of the ninth with a two-out, two-strike RBI double by Francisco Lindor, Jose Ramirez led off the bottom of the 10th with a hustle double to center field off Brandon Maurer (2-2).

Although major league baseball's official statistician - Elias Sports Bureau - says the 1916 New York Giants had baseball's longest-ever winning streak with 26 games, Brown argues that streak should be invalidated by a tie game the Giants had with Pittsburgh at its halfway mark. The Tribe begins a a 4-game set with Kansas City at Progressive Field on Thursday seeking to continue their winning ways, one game at a time.

The Dodgers now hold a four-game lead over the Indians for the best record in baseball.

But it doesn't matter so much, because Cleveland is going to win 27 games, because this team is never going to lose again. Cleveland's shortstop has gotten an extra-base hit in nine straight games, extending his string with a leadoff double in the first inning as the Indians ended their winning run at 22 games. Tonight, though, was not like any of the games that had come before-tonight, for the first time in weeks, it seemed like Cleveland might actually lose.

Okay, so Cleveland may or may not have tied the record for consecutive wins by a team, but that probably led you to wonder which pitcher has won the most games in a row? In the clubs' past four meetings, the Royals are 0-4 and have been outscored 23-2.

Last night was certainly one not to be forgotten in Cleveland.

DIAMONDBACKS 7, ROCKIES 0: A.J. Pollock had four RBI for the second straight day, J.D. Martinez homered for the 10th time in 11 games and Arizona extended its wild-card lead with a win at Phoenix.

Peacock (11-2) had another strong start late in a season spent moving between the rotation and the bullpen, earning his first victory since August 4.

Thursday night marked the return of Andrew Miller, who pitched the seventh inning and jogged to the mound to a loud ovation from the home crowd. Syndergaard was 1-2 with a 3.29 ERA before getting hurt. The Minnesota Twins did it in June 1991, and the Kansas City Royals did it in September 1977.

Jason Vargas (16-10) got this win, giving up three runs in five-plus innings.

With the playoffs approaching, here are five reasons why the Indians will be playing a lot more baseball this season.
