CLEVE­LAND, Ohio (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 to move within four wins of match­ing the 1916 New York Gi­ants for the long­est streak in ma­jor league his­tory.

After blowouts, shutouts and easy wins, the In­di­ans went into ex­tra in­nings for the first time to keep the long­est streak in 101 years in­tact.

Ramirez led off the 10th with a hard hit into right-cen­ter off Bran­don Mau­rer (2-2) that he turned into a dou­ble with a head­first slide. After Ed­win En­car­na­cion walked, Bruce, the re­cent ar­rival who hit a three-run homer in win No. 21 on Wed­nes­day, ripped a 2-0 pitch into the right-field cor­ner.
