Odd ball: Indians chase win streak record that includes tie

They rallied once, twice and then a third time, but still lost their 16th in 17 games. Jose Ramirez later added a sacrifice fly to score Lindor, and the rout was on.

In the second inning, Carlos Santana led off with a walk and went to second on a single to left by Yandy Diaz.

"Incredible", Hirdt said of the Giants' streakiness.

The Indians' double-digit win streak may be fundamentally unsustainable, but at least on Saturday, they showed no signs of slowing down. "With the addition of Edwin (Encarnacion) and myself, I feel that just lengthens what was already a very long lineup (from last season)".

After toppling the Los Angeles Dodgers for best record, the Indians have realized an 19-game winning streak which is only one game away from the 20-game record set by the Oakland A's in 2002.

"To me, in the full picture, they're the best team in baseball", said Tigers manager Brad Ausmus.

"But it's a lot harder to actually put a roster like that together". "And I don't know how you pitch to it, either".

Corey Kluber didn't pitch his first full season in the big leagues until he was 27. There are instances where games end in ties, as happened to the Cubs last season when a late September game with Pittsburgh ended 1-1 because the teams were not scheduled to meet again. Play the game at hand, then turn the page, because there's another game tomorrow. Texas is within two games of Minnesota for the second AL wild-card berth, with the Mariners now 3 1/2 games back. They have scored first in 18 of the 19 wins.

"You get leads and you try to hold them", said closer Cody Allen, who has converted 26 of 30 save opportunities.

Whether or not Chief Wahoo is appropriate really shouldn't be up for debate at this point, and Indians fans clinging to the legacy of Louis Sockalexis - the Penobscot player in whose honor the Indians are named - are kidding themselves.

"That's part of the game", Cash said. "To ask him to go against the defending American League champions, that's a tall task". He is 31 years old and has shown declining stuff in each of his first two seasons with the team after signing a five-year, $110 million contract. The hurricane caused the Rays and Yankees to switch their current series to New York's Citi Field.
