CLEVELAND-- The Indians historic win streak came to an end Friday night with a 4-3 loss to the Royals.

Francisco Lindor started things off with a double and was knocked in by an Edwin Encarnacion sac fly. But Kansas City's Acides Escobar hit a solo shot to tie it up.

In the third inning, Jose Ramirez blasted the ball for a two-run homer. The score was 3-2, Indians, at the end of the fourth.

The Tribe gave up two runs over the next two innings. They trailed the Royals, 4-3, in the seventh.

The Indians set a new American League record with 22 consecutive victories. They are now second in the record books behind the 1916 New York Giants, who won 26 straight.

Cleveland returns to action against Kansas City on Saturday in front of a sold-out crowd.

The Tribe already punched their ticket to the playoffs and lead the AL Central.
