If we make it to 22 wins, we'll surpass the Chicago Cubs, who won 21 straight games in 1935. The Indians, who haven't won the World Series since 1948, have outscored opponents by 102 runs (134-32) during their winning streak, while hitting.308. Baltimore starter Ubaldo Jimenez (5-10) gave up six hits, two walks and three runs while striking out five in five innings. We're aware of it just because of the attention it gets, but it's not something we're focusing on. "I'd like to say we're going home with the trophy this time, but my only concern is that every team eventually hits some sort of slump, so I'd nearly like to see us hit our slump sooner than later". - Jay Bruce (via @jareddiamond), who was acquired from the Mets on August 9. He pitched an inning and struck out a batter. The stadium was packed for an afternoon game, which is rare, and obviously the team had the pressure of continuing the streak. Francisco Mejia, pinch-hitting for Brandon Guyer, was intentionally walked. A few pitches later, Hardy uncorked a wild pitch, allowing Santana to score with a head-first slide.

In 57 career at-bats against Kluber, Cabrera has six home runs, with 12 runs-batted-in. "People always ask me, 'What record would you like to see broken?' I've always been a team-oriented guy and I tell them I would like to see a consecutive winning streak. His defense was what got the attention initially, but I think he's turned himself into more than just a great defensive player, but a great overall player". "That was a fun game to be a part of", Francona said.

The Giants had an unbeaten streak of 27 games, but that included a tie.
