MLB game recap

During today's Cleveland Indians' win, Francisco Lindor hit a double in the sixth inning while Jason Hammel was on the mound.

That hit gave Lindor an extra-base hit in 10-straight games. That's an Indians' record and just four shy of the all-time MLB record. Paul Warner (1927) and Chipper Jones (2006) had 14-straight games with an extra-base hit during their respective seasons.

The Indians grabbed a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning on an Abraham Almonte sacrifice fly to center field scoring Jay Bruce. Alex Gordon hit a solo home run for the Kansas City Royals to tie it up at the top of the third. However, Cleveland had a three-run third inning to reclaim the lead. That included a RBI single from Carlos Santana to score Lindor and an Edwin Encarnacion sac fly to score Austin Jackson. The Royals would try to battle back, adding another run in the top of the fourth but Cleveland kept on bringing the pain.
