Indians win 17th straight
The molten-hot Cleveland Indians won again Saturday afternoon, extending their franchise record winning streak to 17 games. They’ve outscored their opponents 118-30 (118-30!) during the 17 games. They’ve only trailed in four out of 153 total innings during the streak as well, including for the first two innings Saturday. The Orioles took a quick 1-0 lead on three singles in the first inning.
The Indians responded with one run in the third, one run in the fourth, one run in the fifth, and one run in the seventh. Franchise shortstop Francisco Lindor swatted his 28th home run of the season for an insurance run late in the game. Starter Josh Tomlin allowed two runs in five innings, which qualifies as a poor outing for Cleveland’s rotation these days.
