Thursday afternoon's win against the playoff-bound Minnesota Twins gave the Cleveland Indians 100 wins in an alreadyspectacularseason.
100 wins is the most by an Indians team since 1995 when they went 100-44 in the strike shortened season. They are also just the third team in franchise history to reach the century wins mark joining the aforementioned 1995 team as well as the 1954 team that went 111-43.
The 2017 season has seen career-high numbers for several of young Indians players like Francisco Lindor and Jose Ramirez, who have quickly become the heart and soul of the Tribe. This season also gave Indians fans the greatest winning streak in MLB history as the team notched 22-straight wins surpassing the 'Moneyball' 2002 Athletics.
Also on Thursday, Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco closed off his 2017 regular season campaign in style with an outing only dreams are made of. Carrasco came into Thursday's start needing five strikeouts to surpass his career-best, he ended up fanning a season-high 14 to put his totalat 226. Terry Francona also kept him in the game long enough (8.1 innings) so Carrasco could hit the 200 innings pitched mark for the 2017 season, another career-high for the Tribe right-hander.
No doubt, this is truly a season to remember for the franchise as well as Tribe fans.
