Cleveland Indians Try To Extend Streak to Ten Games, Longest Since 2013

The Indians have now won nine straight games, fresh off of sweeping the Detroit Tigers for the third time this season and now they prepare for a three-game series in Atlanta against the Braves.

The Braves own the worst-record in the National League and the second-worst in MLB, but have won seven of their last ten games.

The Indians are a bit fortunate that they don’t have to face Atlanta’s ace Julio Teheran.

If the Tribe can pull off a win on Monday night when Trevor Bauer takes on John Gant, it would be the first ten-game win-streak for the Indians since the end of the 2013 season, when they won their final ten games of the season to earn a wild card spot.

At the risk of putting the cart before the horse, the longest win-streak in franchise history is 13 games, which the Tribe achieved in 1942 and 1951.

It would take a sweep of the Braves and a win over the Blue Jays in Toronto on Thursday to accomplish that.

Manager Terry Francona keeps his team grounded and takes things one game at a time, like most MLB players and managers do, but if the Indians keep rolling, we could witness history.

Is it a coincidence that this hot streak has coincided with the Cavaliers winning the championship? Yes. But who cares? It’s an awesome time to be a fan of Cleveland sports.
