Cleveland Indians Set American League Record with 21st Consecutive Win

The Cleveland Indians powered their way into baseball history Wednesday afternoon, setting an American League record with their 21st consecutive victory, a 5-3 conquest of the Detroit Tigers at Progressive Field.

Home runs by Jay Bruce and Roberto Perez – giving them 41 homers in the streak – lifted the Indians past the 2002 Oakland Athletics for the AL record, and tied the 1935 Chicago Cubs at 21 wins in a row.

A victory Thursday night against the Kansas City Royals would leave only the 1916 New York Giants – who won 26 consecutive games -ahead of the Indians.
