The streak is finally over
The Cleveland Indians are human after all. No late rally this time.
Their record breaking streak is finally over after they were beaten 4-3 by the Kansas City Royals Friday night in Cleveland.
The loss was the first by the Indians since August 23rd.
Jason Vargas (16-10) pitched into the sixth and Brandon Moss homered off Trevor Bauer (16-9) as the Royals ended baseball's longest win streak in 101 years. The Indians set a new league mark and came within four of matching the overall record held by the 1916 New York Giants.
When Francisco Lindor struck out with a runner on first to end it, the packed crowd gave the Indians a prolonged standing ovation. Manager Terry Francona and the Cleveland players came out of the dugout to salute their fans.
