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: Detroit Tigers

Location: Progressive Field

Score: 2-0

Player of the Game: Corey Kluber (9 IP, 5 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 8K)

Play of the Game: Francisco Lindor‘s super-human spin-o-rama toss to 1st to throw out catcher Bryan Holaday.

Season Record: 89-56

Streak Run Differential: +102


A brilliant defensive game from the Tribe earns a 20th victory, enough to tie the 2002 Oakland Athletics for longest American League win streak. Kluber does what he does best and pitches a complete game shutout giving up only 5 hits.
