Indians set American League record with 21st consecutive victory after defeating Tigers

That was five years before the Cleveland Indians won their last World Series.

With the win and the Los Angeles Angels loss to the Astros, the Indians have officially clinched a playoff berth - the team could lose all 15 of its remaining games and still make it to the postseason, although that seems unlikely at the moment.

Down to his last strike, Lindor sent Progressive Field into jubilation Thursday night when he ripped his double off the left field fence.

They will be tested against those teams in the final stretch, as they face off against the Brewers and Cardinals 11 times in the final 17 games.

Through the first 21 games and 189 innings, Cleveland had trailed in just four innings.

Curtis Danburg, senior director of communications for the Indians, reports that strong advance sales for the 4:10 p.m. game on September 16 and the 1:10 p.m. game on September 17 put those games in the realm of likely sellouts.

Cleveland grabbed a 3-1 lead in the third on Jose Ramirez's two-run blast to left, but the Royals got a solo homer from Brandon Moss in the fourth and Eric Hosmer's RBI single in the fifth to tie the game at 3-3.

"I don't think there was a second that I doubted we were gonna score some runs or string together some hits", Clevinger said. Do you think they will make it to a 23 win game streak tonight?

"It was kind of like a relief", Tomlin said of seeing Lindor stride to the plate.

Now, three years later, the Red Sox were doing it again, against the Indians this time. Add it all up, and the Indians are generating runs at a much faster pace than they're giving them up. "He's going to need some outings, but that was a really good first step for him".
