Due to our powerful obsession with memories of the Cleveland Indians being awesome, Always The Jake is celebrating the one-year anniversary of The Streak by doing a brief recap of each game. Check back each day prior to game time to see the details of the game that took place one year ago that day!
Opponent: Baltimore Orioles
Location: Progressive Field
Player of the Game: Francisco Lindor (2-3, 2B, R, BB, SB)
Play of the Game: Just as it seems Baltimore will escape a bases loaded 7th, Lindor steals home on a wild pitch to bring our final score to 5-0.
Season Record: 85-56
Streak Run Differential: +86
Edwin Encarnacion blasts a 1st-inning, 3-run homer to help the Indians win-streak continue. This homer also extends Eddy’s own streak of reaching base safely in 31 straight games. Mike Clevinger throws six shutout innings to inch the Tribe ever closer to win-streak history.
