LeBron James congratulates Cleveland Indians after their 21st consecutive victory — Cavs video

"It's pretty special", he said on Wednesday.

Wednesday afternoon the Tribe won their 21st consecutive contest with a 5-3 win over the Tigers, tying the 1935 Chicago Cubs for the longest win streak in league history without a tie.

Among the handful of pre-1900 teams to rival the Indians in putting together consecutive victories were the 19 century forerunner of the Cubs, the Chicago White Stockings, who won 21 successive games (including a tie) in 1880 and 18 straight in 1885. "The mechanics of it, the way he's bracing himself when he's throwing his slider, which was the real issue when his knee was bothering him, are all really good".

If you saw the movie 'Moneyball' the game might ring a bell.

"It's crazy the way they're playing, just crazy", Deas said.

The Indians entered the first game of a Sept. 1 doubleheader against the Tigers seven games into the streak. Cleveland's probably had something similar in there until recently. "It doesn't matter who it is or what goes down". Boyd started the game and lasted five innings and was relieved by Blaine Hardy for one out.

If the Orioles end up watching the playoffs in October, hopefully, Dan Duquette will be able to address some of these issues - especially in regards to starting pitching. We're trying to keep everything on the shelf that we can.

That said, the Giants streak was an endurance test tough to fathom today. The Indians outscored the Orioles by only three runs in the last two games. To win 20? I can't imagine. Those Twinkies went 15-0 in June of 1991 en route to winning the World Series.

They were the first unearned runs allowed by the Indians since Aug. 17, a 26-game stretch. Detroit starter Buck Farmer's next pitch struck home plate umpire Quinn Wolcott in the shoulder, causing another delay. Andrew Miller, Cody Allen, and Bryan Shaw anchor the late inning work.

James' and J.R. Smith's support for the team was documented throughout the 2016 World Series. But, the Orioles bullpen got the job done. The Giants didn't do that. Ramirez had a pair of hits on Tuesday; Lindor hit a solo homer. Right after that, the home plate umpire was hit when replacement catcher John Hicks couldn't snag a trailing fastball.

Farmer has been hit and miss lately. The first game of that double header would have been the make up game of the previous days tie.

Streaks like this are near impossible as the historical significance suggests.

The Tigers scored twice to close within a run in the sixth, but the Indians responded quickly again, with Roberto Perez belting a solo shot over the wall in center for a 5-3 lead in the seventh.
