The Cleveland Indians tied the American League record with their 20th straight win, defeating the Detroit Tigers 2-0 on Tuesday Night at Progressive Field in Cleveland, OH. 

The Indians tied the mark set by the 2002 Oakland Athletics. The 1935 Chicago Cubs hold the Major League Baseball record with 21 consecutive victories.

The Indians streak began on Aug. 24 with a 13-6 victory over the Boston Red Sox. Since then the Indians have gone on to sweep the Kansas City Royals, New York Yankees, Detroit Tigers, Chicago White Sox and Baltimore Orioles, while taking the first two games in their current series with the Tigers. 

Cleveland will attempt to tie the Major League record and set a new American League record in the finale of their three game series with the Tigers on Wednesday afternoon.
