TORONTO– The Cleveland Indians achieved something that’s only been done twice it the team’s history: Win 13 straight games.

The Tribe beat Toronto, 4-1, Thursday night to extend their hot streak. The franchise won 13 in a row in 1951 and 1942.

Rajai Davis put the Indians on the scoreboard first with a solo shot in the second inning. In the third, Jason Kipnis hit a solo home run of his own, making the score 2-0.

Toronto’s Josh Donaldson answered in the fourth with a home run.

Two innings later, Mike Napoli would hit a double and get knocked in by Jose Ramirez, who was picked off at first base.

Pitcher Carlos Carrasco had 14 strikeouts in a little more than seven innings.

The Tribe didn’t score again until the ninth inning, when Tyler Naquin got an RBI off his triple. That put the score at 4-1.

Cleveland is coming off sweeps of Detroit and Atlanta. The Indians will be back at Progressive Field on the Fourth of July.
