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: Kansas City Royals
Location: Progressive Field
Player of the Game: Lorenzo Cain (3-4, 2B, RBI, R, BB)
Play of the Game: Francisco Lindor swings and misses at a pitch in the dirt giving Kansas City the victory and ending the longest winning streak in over 100 years.
Season Record: 91-57
For the 2nd night in a row, the Indians find themselves down a run in the 9th, two outs and two strikes. Last night, Lindor drove one to left to bring home the tying run from 1st. Tonight, Lindor strikes out leaving the tying run at 1st. This final out ends the game and the streak.
Cleveland’s historic 22-game winning streak, 2nd longest all-time, finishes just four games behind the 1916 New York Giants.
The Indians will go on to win their next five games…
