The Cleveland Indians are leading the Detroit Tigers, 4-3, in the sixth inning. If they win, it will be their 21st consecutive victory, an American League record. It will be the second-longest streak of all-time, behind only the 1916 New York Giants (though that stretch included a tie).
In short, the Indians are white-hot. And when things get steamy, sometimes the sprinklers go off to prevent a fire. That’s clearly what happened during the fifth inning.
Tigers left fielder Alex Presley was remarkable unfazed and play quickly resumed.
