When the Oakland A's set the American League record with a 20-game winning streak in 2002, they did so in dramatic fashion. Wins 18, 19 and 20 were all walk-off victories, with No. 20 the famous Scott Hatteberg pinch-hit home run after the A's had blown an 11-0 lead. Beane recently said he knew the streak was over at that point; the team was gassed.
The Cleveland Indians, on the other hand, look like they may never lose again. They beat the Tigers 5-3 on an overcast afternoon in Cleveland for their 21st win in a row.
