The Cleveland Indian's 2-0 win Tuesday night was their 20th victory in a row.
With a 2-0 win over the Detroit Tigers Tuesday night, the Cleveland Indians notched their 20th victory in a row.
Without a doubt, baseball fans will understand the significance of the Indians even tying the American League record of 20 consecutive wins.

Statistics site FiveThirtyEight predicts odds before every Major League Baseball game.
And looking back at those estimates for the Indians, they had about a 0.005 percent chance of winning those 20 games in a row.
Yet, despite the 1 in 20,000 odds, you could say the Indians dominated.
In seven of those matchups, the Indians' opponents didn't score a single run.
And out of the 180 innings played during those 20 games, the Indians were behind at the end of only four.
