Here's Paul Cicala's commentary from KVOA News 4 as he talks about Terry Francona and the Indians record-breaking 21st win in a row!  Also, hear post-game reaction from Francona, the former U of A baseball standout. 

Here's more from the Associated Press:

The Cleveland Indians won their 21st straight game on Wednesday, 5-3 over the Detroit Tigers, to set a AL winning-streak record and join only two other teams in the past 101 years to win that many consecutive games.
    
Jay Bruce hit a three-run homer off Buck Farmer (4-3) and Mike Clevinger (10-5) won his fourth straight start as the Indians matched the 1935 Chicago Cubs for the second-longest streak since 1900. The run has put Cleveland within five wins of catching the 1916 New York Giants, who won 26 straight without a loss but whose century-old mark includes a tie.
    
The Indians haven't lost in 20 days, and they've rarely been challenged during a late-season run. However, they had to overcome a costly error and rely on their bullpen to hold off the Tigers, who closed within 4-3.
    
Roberto Perez added a homer in the seventh and four Cleveland relievers finished, with Cody Allen getting his 27th save.
    
With the crowd of 29,346 standing and stomping, Allen retired Ian Kinsler for the final out, giving the Indians the league's longest streak since the AL was founded in 1901.
