LeBron congratulates Indians following 21st straight win

The team also announced that designated hitter Victor Martinez had season-ending cardiac ablation surgery earlier this week and is resting at home. That's better than a half-run per game, spread out over 162 games. The Indians now own the best record in the American League at 89-56, vaulting themselves past the Astros. The Indians have won 21 in a row. Spell it out: WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW. These days, the two teams would just have completed the game from the night before, but that wasn't the policy way back when.

Cleveland tied the 2002 Oakland Athletics.

The first three months of the season were a little contentious for the Indians, but with a 13.5 game lead over the Twins now in the AL Central the Indians have run away with the division.

"We haven't talked about it at all", Kluber said of the winning streak.

Cleveland will look to further extend its streak tomorrow when the Kansas City Royals come to town. They are smothering and bludgeoning opponents at the same time.

"I have given that zero thought", said manager Terry Francona. On September 18, they played the Pittsburgh Pirates to a nine-inning tie.

The Indians came out strong against the Tigers, going up 4-1 by the third inning.

That scored Alex Presley, but Cleveland answered with a three run home run from Jay Bruce in the bottom of the first inning, scoring Francisco Lindor and Jose Ramirez.

Even tying these Indians during a game has been almost impossible. Not bad for a Cubs' squad that was 10 1/2 games out of first place on July 4th of that season.

The Tribe is now 89-56 overall and sits at the top of the American League Central Division. If you go back, it sucks, but at the same time it's cool to see teams accomplish something like that.

"We just want our guys to show up every day ready to play a good game", he said.

On Wednesday afternoon, the #Cleveland Indians brought their 20-game winning streak to #Detroit to face the Tigers.

Over on the Indians' side, they're going with RHP Mike Clevinger on Wednesday.

The 1916 New York Giants hold the all-time mark at 26 consecutive wins.

When Francisco Lindor smiles, I smile. Three of the team's most recognizable players - Andrew Miller, Jason Kipnis and Michael Brantley - have been on the disabled list for the entirety of the streak. Even Las Vegas is on board, installing them as co-favorites with the Los Angeles Dodgers to win the World Series.

"We're just trying to win on a daily basis", closer Cody Allen said.

Like anything, though, you have to take it step-by-step, game-by-game. "Last year they won 14 in a row, so we thought 15 games in a row was possible and with it being our 15th anniversary, it made sense".
