So, the Indians finally lost a game.

Maybe it’s the Mariners’ turn to enjoy a huge win streak before the end of the season. Who’s with me?

Seriously though, winning 22 games in a row? That’s crazy. There are countless things easier than winning a baseball game that I struggle to do 22 times in a row. For example, I would be proud if I remembered to brush my teeth 22 nights in a row. Congrats, Cleveland. That was amazing.
