GAME RECAP

A solid game from both sides of the ball and a dramatic end put this one in the record books.┬áThe 2017 Cleveland Indians now hold the record for longest American League win streak with 21 in a row, passing the 2002 Oakland A’s. Tomorrow they will attempt to pass the 1935 Chicago Cubs and continue their hunt for the mother of all streaks: The 1916 New York Giants (26 games).
