The 1916 New York Giants are generally cited as the all-time record-holders with 26 consecutive wins, but they did have a tie mixed into a 27-game unbeaten stretch.
Manager Terry Francona says he thinks the winning streak means more since the team has focused just on winning one game at a time. Teammate Abraham Almonte obliged. "I ran out of bats".
There was one problem, however, with the replacement.

Lindor turned to the dugout before leaving the batters' box and smiled at his teammate. He didn't stand a chance, but I'm glad Mike Sarbaugh sent him.

Cleveland trailed Houston by 14 games on July 22. That will go a long way in the Indians hunt to get back to the World Series where they fell a game short of being champions last season. Going on trips to see the team play meant that for 3 hours, my dad and I could experience in person the greatest source of joy that we had, and when we would get home late at night, we'd sleep happy no matter the result because we got to see our heroes play.

Indians: Relief ace Andrew Miller (right knee tendinitis) will throw a simulated game Monday. They're all on the disabled list.
"These guys are hot right now", Jaye said. He's been on the DL since August 9, but is hitting in the batting cages and throwing. Cleveland had taken a three-games-to-one lead in the best-of-seven series.
