The Cleveland Indians now have the longest winning streak in American League history following their 5-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers this afternoon at Progressive Field.
Manager Terry Francona says he thinks the winning streak means more since the team has focused just on winning one game at a time.
“Our guys are playing the game to win the right way, so that part is really meaningful. They should enjoy what they’re doing. It’s pretty special.”
The victory eclipsed the twenty-game win streak set by the 2002 Oakland Athletics.
