That's kind of strange. Usually ESPN is too busy telecasting the Yankees and Red Sox.

Indians going to extra innings. Lindor comes through with a big RBI double with two strikes and two outs in the bottom of the 9th. Hopefully can win this game in extras.

This might be the most likable team in sports in recent memory, not sure how anyone couldn't be rooting for them.

22 in a row is just incredible. Most likely we won't see it again in our lifetimes. In a lot of ways it's more significant than a ring.

Big balls Jose stretching that 10th inning lead-off into a double was awesome. Redemption for Bruce's previous AB was a terrific ending.

Jose=MVP

I think that was the first win in the streak with no appearance by Gio Urshela.

What this team is doing is incredible. I was sure yesterday was the end. KC getting bloopers to fall for RBI hits, leaving the bases jammed in the 8th, it seemed like their turn to lose. Nope. Just incredible.

That was a helluva play! I would have never thought to attempt to make that throw.

Last night's comeback win was probably the best of the 22.

For all the beating that MLB takes from the modern sports fan it still has the best end of the game drama of any sport. With no clock it isn't over till that last out is recorded so no running out the clock or stupid penalties/fouls to negate clutch play.

That's no lie, wife and I woke the younger kids up screaming at the bottom of the tenth inning, felt like a world series game.

Seems he did not have his best stuff. Struggled, but kept fighting. All good things come to an end. Longest streak in 100 years. If the Indians do nothing else this year, this streak will be remembered. So cool.

Agreed, I will always remember this streak. I think regular season successes are incredibly underrated in today's sports

Regular seasons do seem undervalued by some fans, that's for sure. As far as the players, the NBA is the worst. It amazes me that they command the prices that they do for some games. I don't find it worth the effort to go downtown for many regular season Cavs game even if I get free tix, now that my boys are older. meh

I saw nothing in the Indians' approach or play that really reminded me of the typical NBA regular season apathy/malaise all year, streak or not. Sure, the sports and pace of play are very different physically, but the spirit of that dugout is amazing to me. Has to be the kids in it.

As predictable as it is for Neo to make an a-hole post, it is at least somewhat clever.

No surprise to see an ahole poster like yourself stick up for an ahole post. I did appreciate his post, though......

It's great to see a 'nati goof take a shot at both Cleveland's pro basketball team and pro baseball team in one post, considering that Cincinnati has neither one anymore

The Indians have all of their farm teams in Ohio cities now - even an unofficial one.

Good comeback today. Shows that the streak was not that vital to the players.

Despite the re-emergence of the bad Shaw, the Tribe hangs on 3-2, giving Kluber his 17th win.

Kluber continues to shine, and to make his case for the Cy Young award. 22 scoreless innings in a row now.

Has a wicked, wicked curve ball. And yes, every outing is an adventure - or expected to be.
