The Indians' amazing 22-game winning streak by the numbers

On Friday night, the Indians lost a close one to the Royals, and as a result their 22-game win streak came to an end. It's the longest winning streak in American League history, and depending upon how you feel about the Giants 27-game unbeaten streak in 1916 (we debated that very topic) it might be the longest in MLB history. In either case, the Tribe's roll is something to celebrate. So let's do that, by the numbers ...
