ct-indians-cubs-corey-kluber-world-serie The Seattle Mariners performed one of the rarest feats in baseball; they beat the Cleveland Indians.  Its one in only two times the Tribe haven't landed in the win column in 28 games spanning to the 22nd of August-- shattering the record of the American League and flirting with the all time mark in 1916 (N.Y. Giants) in the process garnering the consecutive road win record at 12 with dominating pitching and batting contributions from all quarters.  Its an embarrassment of riches which includes 16 game winning from 3 starters, including Trevor Bauer who had in the second part of this year morphed into a world beater if not one of the best third starters in baseball, in the loss today surrendering just one to oppose a stellar effort from Seattle's starter.  Fransico Lindor has belted 31 homers, Jose Ramirez and Edward Encarnacion have powered the offense but even during the 22 game winning streak, the Indians had to compensate for losing players like Michael Brantley (hitting at a .300 clip in his return from shoulder surgery but lost again to a sprained ankle), Jason Kipnis who now rejoins the team as a centerfielder as Ramirez moves back to 2B to accomodate phenoms Giovanni Urshella (one of the most dynamic defenders at 3B in the game) and Yandi Diaz,.  Lonnie Chisenhal continues to nurse a hamstring but the Indians made a gigantic addition to their outfield with slugger Jay Bruce.

4-2 Indians beat Seattle to take 2/3 as they deal death blows to their chances of postseason play along with a sweep of the Angels who are likewise all but finished.  The 100 win mark is there for the taking as the Tribe seeks for only the 4th time in their history to win more than 100 and incredibly vie for the best mark in wins for all of baseball and home field advantage throughout the playoffs as both the Dodgers and Astros have fallen back to Earth.

The Indians begin their march back to the World Series with a shutout of the New York Yankees 4-0 in the best of 5 ALDS as Trevor Bauer struck out 8 and gave up only 2 hits as Aaron Judge struck out 4 times and Jay Bruce fueled the Indians offense with a double, homer and sac fly to set up the Tribe 1-0 with Corey Kluber, owner of the AL's top mark with 2.25 ERA set to pitch Game 2 and Carlos Carrasco- lost last season but stellar especially on the road this year, slated for Game 3 in NY.
