Don’t look now but the Cleveland Indians are the hottest team in baseball.
The Indians extended their win streak to 10 games after their 8-3 win over the Atlanta Braves on Monday night, which is the longest winning streak in the MLB this season.
The Indians strength is obviously their starting rotation, however, the Tribe’s lineup during this stretch has led the way with jumping out to early leads and bumping the Indians’ run differential to +86, which is second in the Majors only to the Chicago Cubs (+158). The offense has also scored at least six runs in their last seven games giving the potent rotation a lot of room to work with.
Even with the Indians playing the hottest baseball in the league before the All-Star break Francisco Lindor isn’t satisfied "We don’t play for that, we play for October," he said after Monday’s victory.
