In a season where other teams have displayed dominance, the Indians stand alone. The rookie was tagged for just three hits and an earned run on 43 pitches.

The Cleveland Indians are ripping off victories like few teams before them. So it is that the Cleveland Indians are now the co-favorites to win the World Series, according to online sportsbook Bovada. "And I don't know how you pitch to it, either".

"This is the record that I always wanted to see challenged", he said.

Reporters also made a beeline to the locker of All-Star shortstop Francisco Lindor.

Not everyone is aware of the peculiarity.

Carrasco didn't have his best stuff early Monday night, but managed to toss six scoreless innings, allowing seven hits and one walk while striking out nine.

There is fierce debate at the top of the list based on MLB including the 1916 New York Giants, despite their 26-game streak being interrupted by a tie. They rallied once, twice and then a third time, but still lost their 16th in 17 games.

At this point, it hardly matters who's on the mound. During their winning streak, they have outscored their opponents by 100 runs, or about 5.3 runs per game. "Even if my body doesn't feel good, I just go out there and do my job". The Rays' manager, Kevin Cash, who is a former Cleveland coach, called it a brilliant strategy.

"We pay attention to the streak because you guys bring it up", Lindor said, smiling.

Without Brantley, who has a sprained ankle, the Indians have mixed and matched in left with Brandon Guyer, Austin Jackson and Lonnie Chisenhall, who has mostly ceded his usual right-field spot to Jay Bruce, the slugger acquired in a trade with the Mets last month.

Next up is the American League record held by the "Moneyball" Oakland A's of 2002. It nearly led to a championship, and the Indians will soon clinch another chance. "No offense to the Dodgers or Astros".

"If you can put together a lineup like that - switch hitters, power and speed, outstanding starting pitching, great bullpen - yeah, it's a blueprint", Ausmus said. The Yankees are wrapping a ten-game road trip just a few miles from their Bronx stadium.

The last time we saw World Series odds from Bovada, the Indians were 13/2.
