Indians' 17th straight win has them barreling toward the record book

10 Setiembre 2017

He held the Indians scoreless on two hits over the next four innings.

Francisco Lindor crushed his 28th home run of the season as the Indians topped the Orioles 4-2 to earn their 17th consecutive victory. "We understand that", said Tomlin.

"You try not to think too much about the streak", Clevinger said.

Well, the Indians have won 17 consecutive games and are attempting to catch the 2002 Oakland Athletics, who won 20 in a row.

The longest winning streak in major-league history is 21 by the 1935 Chicago Cubs. In the first inning, Austin Jackson reached first base after grounding into a force out at second.

With a deep rotation, bullpen and lineup, the Indians have enjoyed most of their recent success with Michael Brantley, Jason Kipnis and Andrew Miller all injured.

Will the Orioles bring the Tribe down to earth in their own stadium, or will the red-hot hosts strike a critical blow to the Orioles playoff hopes?

Tomlin was pulled after Tim Beckham's 20th homer leading off the sixth.

Until then, they're having fun doing something few teams have accomplished. It's a testament to this team, the depth, everything. In those four bad ones, he's given up 23 earned runs. Hardy had been on the DL since June 19 with a right wrist fracture.

The Indians nearly pulled off two spectacular defensive plays in the first. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 9 runs. Throwing from his back, Urshela nearly got Machado at first. Since the All-Star break, Indians starting pitchers have a 2.92 ERA, the best in the major leagues. That's one through nine production. Padres reliever Craig Stammen retired two batters with the bases loaded to preserve an 8-6 lead.

Jackson is back on the bench Saturday after getting two straight starts in the outfield.
