Tribe Falls to Royals 5-2; Three Takeaways From The Loss

3. Hitting Streaks Continue

Some bright spots in the Tribe’s day came in the first two innings.

Francisco Lindor’s homer in the bottom of the first tied the game at one, but it did more than just keep the Tribe’s offense from being derailed early.

Lindor’s 11th homer of the year extended his personal hit streak to 12 games. It also made Saturday the 12th straight game the Indians have homered. That makes it the longest home run streak for Cleveland since July of the 2008 season.

Immediately following Lindor, Michael Brantley recorded a single of his own, making it an 11-game hit streak for him.

Lindor is now batting .283 on the year, while Brantley is batting .294.
