IN­DI­ANS 3, ROY­ALS 2

CLEVE­LAND ( AP) — The Cleve­land In­di­ans added a walk-off win to a streak that has had ev­ery­thing. Jay Bruce hit an RBI dou­ble in the 10th in­ning 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.

Af­ter blowouts, shutouts and oh-so-easy wins, the In­di­ans, who tied it in the ninth on Fran­cisco Lin­dor’s two-out, two-strike RBI dou­ble, went into ex­tras for the first time to keep the long­est streak in 101 years in­tact.

“This was prob­a­bly the tough­est one we’ve had,” said Bruce, the re­cent ar­rival who also hit a three-run homer in win No. 21 on Wed­nes­day.
