LeBron James gives Indians special shoutout on Twitter after 19th straight win

"We haven't talked about it at all", Indians pitcher Corey Kluber said. "We just couldn't get it done". To win 20 straight games is hard.

Cleveland Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor, left, and designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion are on a 20-game winning run in Major League Baseball.

The Cleveland Indians are chasing a Major League Baseball record that few teams in the modern era have managed to accomplish.

Despite lackluster numbers with all bases occupied, the Indians are still managing to win ball games. The scary part? Lindor only seems to be improving as the winning streak goes on. When I see the guys laugh with each other and take such pride in playing the game that they love, I know that I'm watching a team that's destined for greatness.

"I feel like in the beginning of the season, everyone was kind of doubting (the Indians)", Sufka said. Personal matters had Deas back in Northeast Ohio this week, and there was zero chance this lifetime fan of the Indians was going to miss the day game against Detroit that presented the opportunity to extend the longest streak of consecutive wins in the 116-year history of the franchise.

The #Cleveland Indians have accomplished history, as they won their 20th straight game on Tuesday night against the Detroit Tigers. Detroit starter Myles Jaye was charged with seven runs on seven hits and a pair of free passes over 3.2 frames to absorb the loss while three relievers combined to give up four runs.

CC Sabathia's criticism won't stop Red Sox from bunting
Asked whether the Red Sox said anything back, Sabathia, with an expletive, said: "I don't even care about what they have to say. I can't change my game. "I'm assuming he bit into something and it came out", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said . "It's my game.

Clevinger, who didn't allow a run in 18 innings over his three previous starts, was down 1-0 in the first after Jeimer Candelario touched him for a two-out RBI double.

On offense, the Tigers had zero runs, five hits and eight strikeouts in their nine trips to the plate. Once, in 2004, in another ALCS, Francona's Red Sox would start the greatest baseball comeback of them all at Fenway Park, in Games 4 and 5 against the Yankees, after falling behind in that series, 3-0.

In the bottom of the eighth, Carlos Santana hit a ball of the center field wall before trying making an ill-advised attempt to turn a triple into an inside-the-park home run-Santana was out by at least 25 feet.

The most staggering statistic of them all.

Congratulations to Miguel Cabrera; the only hitter to draw a walk against Carrasco since August 22 over 107 batters. However, they had to overcome a costly error and rely on their bullpen to hold off the Tigers, who closed within 4-3. Jose Ramirez is hitless in six at-bats against Farmer, who is 0-3 in five appearances (three starts) versus Cleveland.

NOTES: Tigers SS Jose Iglesias was back in the lineup for the first time since September 5. Iglesias had returned to his home in Florida for the birth of his child but got stranded there during Hurricane Irma.
