Indians rally, win AL-record 22nd straight
On a winning streak that just won’t stop, the Cleveland Indians have posted shutouts, blowouts and routine wins.
All that was missing were a walk-off victory and extra innings.
“Check those two off,” closer Cody Allen said. “We’re checking all the boxes.” And check this out: 22 in a row. Jay Bruce hit an RBI double in the 10th inning — after Francisco Lindor tied it with a clutch double in the ninth — as the Indians rallied for their 22nd straight win to extend their AL record, beating the Kansas City Royals 3-2 on Thursday night to move within four wins of matching the 1916 New York Giants for the longest streak in major league history.
