Baseball: Indians’ win streak halted at 22 games

Author: AFPSat, 2017-09-16 05:57ID: 1505546227535997300WASHINGTON: The Cleveland Indians’ historic winning streak was halted at 22 games on Friday as they fell 4-3 to the Kansas City Royals.
A day after the Indians rallied in the ninth inning en route to a 10th-inning walkoff win over the Royals to keep the streak alive, they were unable to come up with another great escape.
Before a packed house of appreciative home fans in Cleveland, the Indians lost for the first time since August 23.
Their 22 straight triumphs set an American League record – surpassing the previous AL mark of 20 straight.
They surpassed the 21-game streak of the National League’s Chicago Cubs in 1935 – but came up short in pursuit of the Major League record 26-game winning streak of the 1916 New York Giants.
