The Cleveland Indians actually lost a baseball game. After putting together the longest MLB winning streak in 101 years, the Indians fell 4-3 to the Kansas City Royals on Friday night in Cleveland to end the streak at 22 games.
And the fans at Progressive Field were much aware of how special the Indians’ streak was. After the Royals’ Mike Minor struck out Francisco Lindor to end the game, Indians fans gave a standing ovation that led the team to come out to the field and tip their caps.
This is an awesome moment:
What a ride!

I also once won 22 games in a
row… but instead of baseball it
was Mario Kart64. And instead
of 22… it was 7.
