Indians match AL streak record with 20 straight wins

Thanks to great pitching and a formidable offense, the Cleveland Indians extended 2017's longest win streak to 20 games, tying an AL record.

The 1935 Cubs hold the mark for most wins in consecutive games with 21, a mark the Tribe will aim for on Wednesday afternoon. Indians manager Terry Francona continued to downplay the winning streak, as he has throughout Cleveland's historic stretch.

"I don't look at it like everything is on the line. We just showed up to win. I thought tonight was a fun game to be a part of," Francona said.

The Elias Sports Bureau credits the 1916 New York Giants with an MLB-record 26-game winning streak, though that run included a tie within a 27-game stretch.
