Vote: How long will the Indians' winning streak last?

The Streak is still alive.

Whether or not Chief Wahoo is appropriate really shouldn't be up for debate at this point, and Indians fans clinging to the legacy of Louis Sockalexis - the Penobscot player in whose honor the Indians are named - are kidding themselves.

As part of the #BuyInJuly promotion, anyone who hired Universal Windows Direct in July would have their entire project paid for by the company if the Indians won 15 straight games this season.

As for the modern era (since 1901), the Indians' 19-game winning streak is tied for the third longest (without a tie) with the 1947 New York Yankees and 1906 Chicago White Sox.

No matter the circumstances, it appears Lindor and his teammates have fully bought into their manager's philosophy.

"Our message is always consistent - show up and try to out-play them today". The 1916 New York Giants had a 26-game streak, but that included a tie.

All-Star shortstop Lindor agrees.

Rookie pitcher Myles Jaye was given the unenviable task of trying to stop the Indians' juggernaut on Monday night. "We're just enjoying the ride. Focus on what we have tomorrow and see what happens".

Even tying these Indians during a game has been nearly impossible. "Between their starting pitching, their bullpen, their athleticism, their lineup, they can get you from both sides of the plate".

To say that the Indians provide a script for the Tigers or any other rebuilding team to follow would be stating the obvious. The Tribe just might have the opportunity to hit that magic 21, too, as they next face the Detroit Tigers for a three-game series.

Francisco Lindor, one of the club's harvested home-grown stars, hit a bases-loaded triple to highlight a five-run second inning. Today is in the past already.

"He throws 95 (mph) with a tremendous power changeup he throws 87 to 90".

And right-hander Carlos Carrasco, one of the come-of-age starting pitchers in the Indians rotation, beat the Tigers for the fifth straight time this season.

"You're talking about a kid who started the year at Double-A", Ausmus said.

That certainly bodes well for the Indians.

The defending AL champions aren't just rolling, they're steamrolling opponents, outscoring them 132-32 during a stretch that includes six shutouts. Yan Gomes followed with a single to center, scoring Santana with the first run.

The lead was never in doubt. One out later, Ramirez hit a sacrifice fly to make it 5-0.

Soon, the calendar will shift to October and if Carrasco stays in his strong form, the Indians will have a key piece they were missing during last year's World Series run.

NOTES: Indians 2B Jose Ramirez was removed from the game in the sixth inning for precautionary reasons with a bruised left forearm. They didn't lose again until Sept. 30, falling 8-3 to the Boston Braves. Zimmer got stepped on while diving into first base on Sunday.
