Streak over

Sunday News - - SPORT -

Base­ball: The Cleve­land In­di­ans’ 22-game win­ning streak came to an end yes­ter­day when they were beaten 4-3 by the Kansas City Roy­als. One night af­ter se­cur­ing the long­est win­ning run in Ma­jor League Base­ball (MLB) in more than a cen­tury, the In­di­ans fi­nally ran out of steam in front of a fren­zied sell­out home crowd at Pro­gres­sive Field in Cleve­land. Only the 1916 New York Giants (26) had a longer run of suc­cess though their re­mark­able stretch, which is recog­nised by the MLB as the long­est in ma­jor league his­tory, in­cluded a tie.
