On deck is a stretch reminiscent of the Cavaliers' victorious run to the NBA Finals. After taking out the Detroit Pistons, the Cavaliers knocked out the Atlanta Hawks. The Indians recently edged the Tigers and Braves. On tap is an away series against the Toronto Blue Jays, similar to the Cavaliers' Eastern Conference Finals matchup against the Raptors.
The Indians have won 21 of 27 games so far in June, with the monthly slate concluding at 7:07 p.m. tonight in Toronto. If the Indians win, it would tie the longest streak in franchise history. The 1951 Indians wrapped up a 13-game streak in August of that year.
