DETROIT (AP) — Shane Bieber dominated once again, striking out 11 in seven scoreless innings, and the Cleveland Indians beat the Detroit Tigers for the 19th straight time, winning 3-1.
Cleveland’s winning streak against one opponent is the longest since the Baltimore Orioles beat the Kansas City Royals 23 times in a row in 1969.
Bieber is 4-0 with a 1.30 ERA in five starts. He allowed three hits and a walk.
The All-Star Game MVP from last year has struck out a major league-leading 54 in only 34 2/3 innings this season.
