'02 A’s watching as Indians go for AL consecutive-wins mark

  '02 A’s watching as Indians go for AL consecutive-wins mark As the Cleveland Indians whirled off wins left and right the past few weeks, members of the A’s 2002 team took notice. “I was watching one night and it kind of sunk in that they were doing this,” former Oakland first baseman Scott Hatteberg said Monday. “They kind of sneaked up on everyone. I don’t think it’s as easy as people make it out to be — the record stood for what, 65 years when we broke it.

The Cleveland Indians tied an American League record with their 20th consecutive win on Tuesday night, and manager Terry Francona has one friend he refuses to share the excitement with — at least in person.

Following his team’s 2-0 win over the Detroit Tigers, Francona told reporters he has a friend who is considered “notoriously bad luck.” He’s willing to exchange text messages with said friend, but that’s as far as it goes.

You can’t blame Francona for not wanting to take any chances. If the Indians can beat the Tigers again on Wednesday, they’ll move into a tie for second all-time with the 1935 Chicago Cubs. They still need to win six more in a row to match the 1916 Giants’ streak of 26.

This isn’t the first time the Indians have found success in September, and Francona had a hilarious reason for his team’s dominance the last time. His poor buddy is the punchline of the joke with this go-around.

What's remarkable is, during this era of ties, the Flyers never won more than nine straight games, winning 25 games with 10 ties during the streak. Philadelphia rode the momentum all the way to the Stanley Cup Final, where the Flyers lost to the New York Islanders. Of note, captain and Hall of Famer Bobby Clarke scored his 900th career goal during this unbeaten streak.</p> 21 greatest winning streaks in sports history
