The Cleveland Indians made history on Wednesday as they beat the Detroit Tigers 5-3 for their 21st straight victory.
With the win, the Indians tied the 1935 Cubs for the longest winning streak in MLB history.
The 1916 New York Giants racked up a 26-game unbeaten streak, but the streak included a tie, leading to a lot of controversy over whether it counts as a "winning streak."
The Indians extended their streak Wednesday by racing out to a 4-1 lead over the Tigers behind home runs from Jay Bruce and Edwin Encarnacion. The Tigers did claw back into the game with a pair of runs in the sixth inning, but a home run from Roberto Perez and strong outings from Bryan Shaw and Cody Allen slammed the door for the Indians.
The Indians will have a chance to make history on Thursday night when they welcome the Kansas City Royals to Progressive Field. A win would give them the longest winning streak (without a tie) in MLB history.
