Move over Moneyball.
The Cleveland Indians won Tuesday's game against the Detroit Tigers on the back of a complete-game shutout from their ace Corey Kluber. It was the club's 20th straight victory, tying the American League record for most consecutive wins and sharing history with the Oakland Athletics.
It's the second straight shutout the Indians have authored against the Tigers in as many games since their series against the AL Central rival began on Monday.
The Athletics set the AL record with 20 straight victories during their storied 2002 season - a pivotal plot line in the Michael Lewis book "Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game."
Focus now turns toward the all-time record, which is the source of some contention. The 1935 Chicago Cubs and 1880 Chicago White Stockings both won 21 consecutive games, although the 1916 New York Giants played 26 games without losing. The record held by the Giants consists of a dozen straight wins, then a tie, followed by another 13 wins.
