On September 14, 2017 — 2017 – The Indians set a new record for most consecutive wins with no ties. They record their 22nd straight win with one of their more spectacular victories yet: they trail the Royals, 2 – 1, in the bottom of the 9th, but with two outs and two strikes and closer Kelvin Herrera on the mound, Francisco Lindor drives a ball against the fence, just out of the reach of LF Alex Gordon, for a double that scores pinch-runner Erik Gonzalez from first base with the tying run. Then, in the 10th, after a double by José Ramírez and a walk to Edwin Encarnacion, Jay Bruce lines a double to the right-field corner for a 3 – 2 win. The previous record of 21 straight wins had been held by the 1935 Chicago Cubs.
