The streak is over.

The Cleveland Indians finally fell on Friday night at home against the Kansas City Royals, ending the second-longest winning streak in Major League Baseball history at 22 games. It was a historic three-week stretch, one which doesn’t end the Tribe’s season, but rather just prepared them for the gauntlet of the postseason.

Cleveland now can set its sights on returning on October, where it came up just a game short from claiming baseball’s most illustrious prize last season. They may not win out on the way there, but the Indians will go down in history one way or the other.
