After a rough road trip to Kansas City and Minnesota the Tribe returns home to rainy Cleveland where they currently have a seven-game win streak at Progressive Field.
Since the park was built in 1994, it’s the 12th time they have won at least seven straight games at home. However, it is already the second-longest home win streak in the month of April.
The only longer April home win streak in the Jacobs Field era came in 1996. After starting 0-3 at home, with losses to the Yankees and Blue Jays, the Indians rattled off 13 straight home victories – eight of them coming in the month of April.
The Tribe will try to match that eight-game April home win streak on Tuesday against the Royals.
