Even before blowout, Tigers needed no convincing: Indians are best in baseball

Carrasco, who has hurled 179.1 innings so far this season, is well on his way to surpassing his career-high of 183.2 in 2015.

The Indians, who have scored first in 18 of the 19 games in their winning streak, scored first in this one.

The 19-game winning streak ties the Indians with the 1906 Chicago White Sox and the 1947 New York Yankees for the fourth-longest run in the major leagues since 1900, according to STATS.

Of course, the Indians are the prototype for that style of bullpen usage, with Francona expertly calling for Miller, Bryan Shaw and Cody Allen throughout the last postseason. The rookie was tagged for just three hits and an earned run on 43 pitches.

Kluber, Carrasco and Trevor Bauer (acquired from Arizona in a three-team, nine-player deal that sent outfielder Shin-Soo Choo to Cincinnati in December 2012) have combined for 46 victories this season, and the rotation has a 1.84 E.R.A. during the winning streak. It's those same Dodgers who share the co-favorite spot with the Indians.

Cleveland -Tigers manager Brad Ausmus has seen this Indians machine coming together.

Whether or not Chief Wahoo is appropriate really shouldn't be up for debate at this point, and Indians fans clinging to the legacy of Louis Sockalexis - the Penobscot player in whose honor the Indians are named - are kidding themselves.

How long will Cleveland's winning streak last?

Earlier that season, the Giants won 17 straight games - all on the road - to offset a 2-13 start.

No matter the circumstances, it appears Lindor and his teammates have fully bought into their manager's philosophy. "Sometimes you have to fight with that".

"I'm not surprised by the streak, but we don't pay that much attention to it", Lindor said. At this rate, the record will be shattered with about two weeks left in the season.

"One game at a time".

Additionally, Myles Jaye makes his first Major League start for the Tigers.

"It's just the next guy up", Kipnis said. It will be preformed by Dr. Thomas Graham in New York. Zimmer got stepped on while diving into first base on Sunday. But in truth, what happens in MLB in September tends to stay in September.
