The Streak Goes On as Tribe Sweeps O’s; Indians 3, Orioles 2

September 10, 2017 |

Numerous injuries, the weather, a flip of the calendar, a pair of doubleheaders in the span of three days, and even a long road trip have failed to slow down the Cleveland Indians. Baltimore proved incapable of stopping the Tribe either, as the Indians continued their utter dominance of Major League Baseball over the last few weeks by winning their 18th consecutive game, defeating the Orioles by a 3-2 final on Sunday Night Baseball.

National Football League action returned to the Cleveland lake shore earlier in the day, but it was the Indians who would be the day’s victor in town as the Indians took an early lead, responded with big back-to-back homers after the Orioles tied the game, and held on for the win as their impressive streak survived another day. The Indians may have been even more inspired prior to their nationally televised game on ESPN as they undoubtedly were aware that the Houston Astros dropped a fourth straight game in Oakland to the A’s, giving Cleveland a half-game lead for the best record in the American League heading into the final game of the day’s schedule.

September 9, 2017 |

The streak remained alive on Saturday afternoon as the Cleveland Indians overcame an early deficit with runs in three straight innings and added an insurance run late on the way to a 4-2 win.

The Indians (86-56) extended their franchise record for consecutive wins to 17 straight with the victory, as Cleveland guaranteed itself its fifth straight series win. Including ties, the Indians have not dropped a series since losing two games and having a third rained out on July 31 and August 1 in Boston against the Red Sox. Read More

Tribe Celebrates Sweet 16 With Another Shutout; Indians 5, Orioles 0

September 8, 2017 |

It took 75 years for the Cleveland Indians to break their franchise record of 13 straight wins (despite matching the mark in 1951). The team needed just 14 months to break that new record of 14, coming with the club’s victory in Chicago on Thursday.

That most recent record lasted less than 24 hours as the Indians returned home to Progressive Field and celebrated a sweet 16th as they blanked the Baltimore Orioles in a 5-0 four-hit shutout on Friday night in the first game of a ten-game homestand.

The Indians extended their winning streak to 16 straight with a big first inning home run and another start from a polished Mike Clevinger, who made a third strong start in a row for the Tribe. The shutout was the Indians’ Major League leading 17th scoreless game of the season. Read More

Kluber Leads Tribe to Franchise Record 15th Straight Win; Indians 11, White Sox 2

September 7, 2017 | | One Comment

Did the Tribe win last night? Of course they did.

The Cleveland Indians completed a perfect 11-0 road trip by winning a franchise-record 15th straight game with a lopsided 11-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox to sweep a second straight four-game series to accomplish a feat never done in their 117-year history.

Corey Kluber had the starting nod, giving the Indians a favorable edge to break a record barely a year old. Putting the odds even more in the favor of the visiting Cleveland club was the fact that Chicago’s probable left-hander, Carlos Rodon, was scratched mere minutes before first pitch, forcing the White Sox to turn to veteran Mike Pelfrey, who had already worked two and one-third innings in relief just two nights prior. Pelfrey’s recent use may have shown quickly on the mound as the Indians raced out to a quick first inning lead and never looked back. Read More

September 6, 2017 |

For the second season in a row, the Cleveland Indians have won 14 straight games, sealing the deal with a 5-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday night.

It was a historic effort for the Tribe, which matched the club’s franchise record just one season after breaking a 75-year-old mark for consecutive wins in a row. Carlos Carrasco made it look easy, as he faced one batter over the minimum in scattering three hits and just one run while throwing his first complete game of the season. Read More
