How long will the Indians' winning streak last — Vote

Everything about the red-hot Cleveland Indians is awesome except their very racist logo

The Streak is still alive. These streaks are rare but the Indians defeated the White Sox Thursday night in Chicago 11-2 for their franchise record 15th straight win.

Cleveland is the sixth team in history to win at least 19 straight, and the streak is the longest since the 2002 Oakland Athletics won 20 in a row - a run that was celebrated in the film "Moneyball". Over the last four years, he's seen their young starting pitchers mature and blossom. Ramirez, a 5-foot-9 switch-hitter, has a.927 on-base plus slugging percentage and leads the American League in extra-base hits, with 79. Between their starting pitching, their bullpen, their athleticism, their lineup, they can get you from both sides of the plate. "Our message has been consistent". "People always ask me, 'What record would you like to see broken?' I've always been a team-oriented guy and I tell them I would like to see a consecutive winning streak". But in truth, what happens in MLB in September tends to stay in September. "We just play the game". "I just don't feel like going there".

All-Star shortstop Lindor agrees. We have all the information you need to know right here so you don't miss a second of the action. "Now we focus on tomorrow". They're just extremely well balanced.

Since then, there's been nothing but W's, let alone a tie.

The Indians' 19-game winning streak stands among the best in baseball history.

Francisco Lindor, one of the club's harvested home-grown stars, hit a bases-loaded triple to highlight a five-run second inning.

Corey Kluber didn't pitch his first full season in the big leagues until he was 27.

"He throws 95 (mph) with a tremendous power changeup he throws 87 to 90".

"You're talking about a kid who started the year at Double-A", Ausmus said.

For now, though, they are having too much fun to step out of the moment. Lindor knocked in another run in the fifth with an RBI ground out.

Bovada released a new list of odds Tuesday, a day after the Indians won No. 19 and the slumping Los Angeles Dodgers lost No. 11 in a row. Tigers RHP Michael Fulmer will undergo season-ending ulnar nerve transposition surgery in his right elbow on Tuesday.

But while they may be the talk of baseball, Cleveland's players are taking it all in stride. Indians manager Terry Francona said he is considering 2B Jason Kipnis as a possible replacement for Bradley Zimmer in center field.
