Indians claim 21st straight win

CLEVELAND (AP) — For more than 100 years, American League teams have gone on winning streaks of varying lengths — short ones, long ones, double-digit ones. Nothing, though, like the one the Cleveland Indians have pieced together.

Moving past the “Moneyball” Oakland Athletics, the Indians set the AL record with their 21st straight win on Wednesday, 5-3 over the Detroit Tigers, to join only two other teams in the past 101 years to win that many consecutive games.

Jay Bruce hit a three-run homer and Mike Clevinger (10-5) won his fourth straight start as the Indians matched the 1935 Chicago Cubs for the second-longest streak since 1900.
