To win the AL Central you have to go through Minnesota. And the Indians don’t appear ready to take that step.
The Tribe’s loss on Easter Sunday extended their losing streak against the Twins to seven games, tied for the second longest streak since the franchise moved from Washington to Minnesota.
The only longer streak – an eight-game stretch – came at the hands of the eventual World Series Champions in 1991.
Additionally, the Tribe has now dropped six straight in Minnesota, which is also tied for the second longest such streak. The only longer drought in Minnesota was a seven-game stretch which spanned the 1963 and ’64 seasons
