3. What’s next?
With the win, the Indians head to Seattle for their final regular-season series on the road. Trevor Bauer will be on the mound tomorrow.
The Indians now have 96 wins with nine games remaining, meaning the team has a chance to get 100 wins for the first time since 1995, and just the third time in the history of the franchise.
That looks pretty promising, considering that in the last 28 games, the Indians are 27-1.
Over those games, Cleveland has outscored opponents 172-56. The starters have posted a 2.06 ERA, while the bullpen has posted a 1.64 ERA.
They’ve also now won 14 straight on the road, setting a new franchise record. Their overall road record of 51-27 is the best in MLB.
All of this is to say that the Indians aren’t just beating teams– they are dominating them.
This becomes even more impressive, considering the fact that they saw their 22-game win streak come to an end last Friday, but have remained laser-focused and won their last five.
And anyone who’s saying this team peaked too soon? Hasn’t been paying attention.
