The 2017 Cleveland Indians season was a very special one. No, they did not make it to the World Series, but it was record setting!
The team stared off the season as the defending American League champion and World Series runner-up.
On September 13th, the Cleveland Indians won their 21st game in a row. That surpassed the 2002 Oakland Athletics for the longest winning streak in American League history, It also tyed the 1880 Chicago White Stockings and the 1935 Chicago Cubs for the second longest winning streak in Major League Baseball history.
Their win streak reached 22 games on September 14, giving the Indians the longest winning streak in Major League Baseball since the 1916. The New York Giants own the all-time record with 26 straight.
On September 15, the 22-game win streak ended in a 4–3 loss to the Kansas City Royals.
