How long will the Indians' winning streak last?

The Detroit Tigers have done their part to contribute to the Cleveland Indians' incredible 19-game winning streak.

The Indians announced that Ramirez was removed for precautionary reasons.

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.

During their streak, the Indians have outscored opponents 132-32.

The latest installment came on Monday night, when the Indians dropped the Tigers 11-0 in a game that seemed nearly comically one-sided.

Todd Frazier's three-run homer capped New York's five-run fourth inning, and the Yankees beat Tampa Bay in a game relocated to Citi Field because of Hurricane Irma's impact on Florida's Gulf Coast. Danny Salazar tossed two innings, and Zach McAllister pitched the ninth to close out the win. Milwaukee falls to 2.5 back of the idle Cubs and two back of the idle Cards in the NL Central. The left-hander pitched six innings of three-run ball. Andrew McCutchen, Starling Marte and Jordy Mercer homered as the Pirates ended a five-game skid.

He made his most recent start on September 7, going 2-for-4 with two home runs and four runs batted in as the Indians defeated the White Sox.

Though, for the second straight night, the Indians had a player exit the game. The total delay time of 3:34 was more than the game time of 3:22.

Delino DeShields, who was 2-for-4 with two runs scored, also had a solo home run to help make a victor out of Cole Hamels (10-3). Cole Hamels struck out seven in six innings to win for the first time in his last four starts.

The assault continued in the fourth inning, when Ramirez belted a two-run home run into the seats in right field for his 26th home run, giving the Indians a 7-0 lead, and the rout was on. Trumbo also ended the game by striking out with the tying run on second, completing Baltimore's fifth consecutive loss. Denard Span - batting third - hit a homer into McCovey Cove and drove in three. The teams stuck it out, however, because the forecast doesn't look all that better for today and tomorrow and the Dodgers didn't want to give up their travel day on Thursday.

Kansas City dropped three games behind the idle Minnesota Twins for the second American League wild-card spot. "All we can say is, 'Go Tribe!'"

"No knock on the Dodgers or the Astros, they're obviously both very good teams", said Tigers manager Brad Ausmus.

Fulmer made his last start on August 29. Fulmer, who was 10-12 with a 3.83 ERA in 25 starts this season, is expected to be fully recovered from the surgery by the start of spring training.

The game was just another in what has turned into Bizarro World for the Dodgers.
