With the Indians and Royals tied 2-2 in the bottom of the 10th inning on Thursday night in Cleveland, Jay Bruce ripped a double into the right field corner to score Jose Ramirez and extend the Indians’ incredible winning streak to 22 games.
A #walkoff for the win streak?
One of Bruce’s greatest hits, for sure. pic.twitter.com/po5DXhca4T

This is now MLB’s longest winning streak since the 1916 Giants won 26 in a row.
The Indians have now done something that hasn't been done in over a century. pic.twitter.com/IPntiEgIHU

Amazing. And here’s a look at more Twitter reaction to the incredible achievement:
During 26-game "winning streak," the 1916 Giants played a nine-inning game they didn't win
Cleveland has won 22 straight. The real record.

Jay Bruce played his first game with the @Indians on Aug. 10. Cleveland is 31-5 since then.

I mostly just want Cleveland to win 27 straight so we don't have to "well, actually" each other over the 1916 Giants for the rest of time

The @Indians are the best story in sports right now.

The Indians have accomplished something that no other MLB team in the last 100 years has accomplished. Truly incredible.
