Indians Fans 22 Wins

Yes, the Chicago Cubs thrashed the New York Mets and Aaron Judge went back to hitting home runs for the New York Yankees, but nothing was bigger than the Cleveland Indians beating the Kansas City Royals in extra innings and winning their 22nd in a row, a new record.

Kansas City Royals 2  Cleveland Indians 3: Breaking records isn’t easy, and the Indians needed a 9th inning double from Francisco Lindor to tie the game and a 10th inning double by Jay Bruce to win it in style, making it 22 consecutive wins.

New York Mets 6  Chicago Cubs 14: The Cubs continue to torment the Mets, this time with home runs from Anthony Rizzo (32nd this season) and Jayson Heyward, who finished with 4 RBIs.

Chicago White Sox 17  Detroit Tigers 7: The two worst teams in the AL Central slugged it out, combining for 6 home runs, 37 hits and 24 runs. Avisail Garcia had another wonderful day, hitting 5-for-5, including 7 RBIs and his 17th home run of the season.

Oakland Athletics 2  Boston Red Sox 6: Drew Pomeranz pitched for 6 innings, improving to 16-5 this season, while Andrew Benintendi was doing great at the plate, hitting 3-for-4 with 3 RBIs.

Cincinnati Reds 2  St. Louis Cardinals 5: The Cardinals are tied with the Brewers for second in the NL Central, 3 games behind the Cubs, beating the Reds behind Tommy Pham’s 20th homer of the season.

Colorado Rockies 0  Arizona Diamondbacks 7: Zack Godley was terrific through 8 innings, giving up only 5 hits while striking out 7 and most importantly, shutting down a very potent offense. A.J. Pollock was in fine form with a couple of hits to finish with 4 RBIs.

Baltimore Orioles 5  New York Yankees 13: The Yankees are 3 games behind the Red Sox, winning their second in a row. Aaron Judge was at his best, hitting a couple of home runs, driving up his totals to 43 homers and 96 RBIs this season.

Atlanta Braves 2  Washington Nationals 5: Tanner Roark struck out 7 in 6 innings of work, relying on Adrian Sanchez with two RBIs and Jayson Werth with a lead off single RBI to do the rest.

Miami Marlins 0  Philadelphia Phillies 10: Jake Thompson set the tone with his start, while the offense delivered with 4 home runs, including Rhys Hoskins hitting his 18th of the season. 

Seattle Mariners 10  Texas Rangers 4: Felix Hernandez returned, limited to 54 pitches and 3.2 innings, which didn’t really matter. Nelson Cruz had 4 hits including his 33rd homer of the season, and Yonder Alonso helped out with 3 RBIs.

Toronto Blue Jays 2  Minnesota Twins 3: The Twins dragged this one into the 10th, and ended it through Byron Buxton’s home run to give them a walk off win, their third in a row.

Houston Astros 5  Los Angeles Angels 2: Brad Peacock improved to 11-2 after a strong 6-inning performance, while Marwin Gonzalez reached 80 RBIs this season with a couple of hits and two Rib-eyes.
