I haven't seen the Indians this hot since since 2005, that is until Grady Sizemore lost that ball in the sun at KC.

Lindor ties the game with a 2 out double in the 9th and the Indians win on a walk off double by Jay Bruce in the 10th. 22 in a row

So they can win 22 in a row now, but not 1 more to end last season. Ugh. I'd trade all 22 of these wins for the clincher.

Well, I hope they save juice for the playoffs. The 2002 As ended with egg on their face. I hope they win it all this year and go back to having a lesser drought than the scrubs.

Speaking of the As, the 01-02 As won more than 200 games in a 2 year span, and never even got a whiff of the LCS. I wonder if any other team in history had 2 consecutive 100 win seasons, only to not even make the final 4 in each of em.

Hell, I wonder if any team in the Big 4 sports had a 2 year winning pct like Oakland did, and never made their final 4.

I was a doubter, but maybe, just maybe we can win with pitching, defense and fundamentals.

It's pretty remarkable. The next highest winning streak in baseball is 3 games. (Phillies) They also won the majority of these games with both Kipnis and Andrew Miller on the shelf.

Yep. And no Michael Brantley, either.

But wait, it will catch up to them when they're up 3 games to 1 in the World Series.

There is a point when the gas fumes are gone and the car stops.
