Marked the longest single-season winning streak in Major League Baseball since 2013 when Atlanta won 14 straight, July 26-Aug. 9…also signaled the longest streak by an A.L. team since Oakland reeled off 20 consecutive victories from Aug. 13-Sept. 4, 2002.

Pitching staff registered a 1.58 ERA, a .176 avg. against and 3 team shutouts (1.83ERA, .174 avg., 3 CG’s/2 SHO’s & 13 QS’s by starting rotation; 6.2IP+ in 11 of 14 starts…bullpen has a 0.79ERA, .182 avg; 5R-3ER allowed in 34.0IP, 39 K’s, 12 BB).

Jason Kipnis led the team with 13 RBI during 14-G streak, followed by Lonnie Chisenhall (10), Carlos Santana (10), Jose Ramirez (9) and Juan Uribe (8)…Uribe had team-high 5 HR, followed by Santana (4)…Francisco Lindor/Santana had a team-best 12 runs scored…Chisenhall led team with 19 hits (.404, 19-47).

Tribe was 19 games over .500 for the first time since finishing the 2013 season at 92-70 (+22)…the Tribe’s low-water mark of the season is 2 games below .500 (10-12 on May 2)…Cleveland finished June at 22-6 (most wins for Tribe in single calendar month since going 22-7 in June 1965 – 8th time in 52 seasons since ‘65 to record 20+ wins in any calendar month)…

First place in the American League Central will be on the line tonight at Progressive Field after the Indians beat the Royals for a second straight night, 6-1, on Friday. The win marked the Tribe’s third straight victory.

Danny Salazar continued his All-Star-caliber 2016 season, striking out nine in eight innings. He’s 6-3, and he dropped his ERA to 2.24; he has a 10.67 K/9 IP rate.

Yan Gomes hit a solo homer in the second, while the Tribe scored three in the third: Jason Kipnis doubled and scored on Francisco Lindor’s RBI single; Mike Napoli doubled home Lindor; and Napoli eventually scored on a wild pitch.

Tyler Naquin hit a solo homer in the seventh – his first career big-league homer. Jose Ramirez later doubled, stole third and scored on an error for the game’s final run.

We took the finale against the Texas Rangers in dramatic fashion last night with a walk-off RBI single after 11 innings.

A game of catch up, the Rangers tied it up in the top of the 9th, to send us into extra innings, but Lonnie Chisenhall opened the 11th with a double, and was later brought home on a chopper up the middle by Yan Gomes.

It was our first walk-off win since August 11.

We put Slider to work this year, in some good ways and some … not so good ways.

We called it Slider’s Spring Training, a quartet of videos documenting his work in Goodyear.

First, it was a helping hand to Joba:

Then, he helped Jose Ramirez with a problem he’d been having:

Of course, he got a little too comfortable in the clubhouse after his Body Issue debut:

Finally, he got busted after a little accident with Terry’s scooter.

As Tribe Fest is coming up on Saturday, all of the Indians players are flocking back to Cleveland from their off-season sites in preparation for the big event.

So, with most of them here – Michael Brantley, Corey Kluber, Jason Kipnis and Yan Gomes decided to get the guys together for a player-orchestrated mini-camp at The Force in Westlake, Ohio.

The guys stretched, ran some drills, played catch and took some BP while they were at it – getting excited for Spring Training since it’s right around the corner!
