Indians set club win streak mark - MLB Summaries / weekend Schedule

CLEVELAND (AP) — Before last night, the last major league team to win at least 15 straight games had a movie made about the season. The Cleveland Indians are hoping their current run leads to their first championship in 63 years.

The Indians set a team record with their 15th consecutive victory by belting five home runs and getting another strong performance from Corey Kluber in an 11-2 pounding of the White Sox in Chicago. It's the longest winning streak since the 2002 Oakland Athletics won 20 in a row on their way to the AL West title.

Kluber was outstanding in holding the White Sox to a pair of runs and three hits while striking out 13. He improved to 15-4 with a 2.56 ERA despite allowing solo homers by Yolmer Sanchez and Jose Abreu in the first inning.

Edwin Encarnacion's three run blast put the Tribe ahead 4-0 in the first inning. Erik Gonzalez added a pair of homers for the Indians, who also got round-trippers from Francisco Lindor and Greg Allen.

Cleveland's magic number to win the AL Central is down to 12.

— Going in the opposite direction are the Los Angeles Dodgers, who have dropped seven straight and 12 of 13 with last night's 9-1 loss to the Rockies. Nolan Arenado put Colorado in front with a three-run blast off Clayton Kershaw three batters into the game. Arenado finished with four RBIs and Carlos Gonzalez added a solo shot as the Rockies moved three games ahead of St. Louis and Milwaukee for the second NL wild-card berth. Kershaw gave up four runs and lasted just 3 2/3 innings in his second start since returning from a back injury. The Dodgers' lead in the NL West is a healthy 10 games over Arizona, but it was 21 games on Aug. 25.

— Sonny Gray pitched into the sixth inning and the Yankees belted four home runs in a 9-1 pounding of the Orioles. Aaron Judge and Chase Headley hit two-run shots to back Gray, who allowed an unearned run and six hits over 5 2/3 innings. Starlin Castro and Todd Frazier also went deep the Yanks climbed within 3 ½ games of the AL East-leading Red Sox.

— The Twins have a one-game lead over the Angels for the second AL wild-card berth after Minnesota put together a three-run ninth to beat the Royals, 4-2. Kelvin Herrera came in to preserve a 2-1 win before allowing a sacrifice fly and Jorge Polanco's go-ahead, two-run single. Robbie Grossman homered for the Twins.

— Jon Lester worked six innings and the Cubs collected eight extra-base hits in an 8-2 win over the Pirates. Albert Almora Jr. smacked a two-run homer and Anthony Rizzo drove in a pair as Chicago moved five games ahead of the second-place Cardinals and Brewers in the NL Central. Ian Happ was 3-for-5 with two runs scored for the Cubs, who scored in each of the first five innings to chase Jameson Taillon.

— St. Louis was a 3-0 loser at San Diego as Clayton Richard pitched five-hit ball over six innings. Wil Myers clubbed his 25th homer of the season, a two-run shot in the seventh to cap the scoring. Closer Brad Hand struck out Dexter Fowler with the bases loaded to end the game as the Redbirds' four-game winning streak.

— The Nationals' magic number to clinch the NL East is down to four after Washington scored three times in the sixth inning to beat the Phillies, 4-3. The Nats trailed 3-1 until Matt Wieters hit an RBI double and scored on Trea Turner's two-run single. Tanner Roark worked sixth innings of the Nationals' fourth straight win.

— Washington also got some help from the Braves, who scored twice in the bottom of the ninth to beat the second-place Marlins, 6-5. Ozzie Albies tied it with an RBI double before Kurt Suzuki's walk-off single sent Miami to its fifth straight loss. Albies and Jace Peterson drove in two runs apiece for the Braves.

— Matt Harvey earned his first win since May 28 by spotting the Reds an early 2-0 lead before lasting five innings in the Mets' 7-2 victory. Brandon Nimmo homered twice and had three RBIs to back Harvey, who was making his second start since suffering a shoulder injury.
