The Cleveland Indians continue to rewrite history, setting an American League record Wednesday by winning their 21st consecutive game.

The Indians' 5-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers tied the 1935 Chicago Cubs for the second-best win streak since 1900; the 1916 New York Giants won 26 games in a row, although their streak included a tie.

The Indians equaled the American League record held by the 2002 Oakland Athletics on Tuesday evening.

A handful of statistics that illustrate their dominance during this historic run:

104 – Run differential - they've outscored their opponents 139-35.

41 – Home runs. Francisco Lindor leads with nine.

6 – Shutouts

5 – Innings trailed, out of 189 innings

19 - Wins from the starting rotation. Trevor Bauer and Corey Kluber each have four.

1.79 – Team ERA

193-36 - Strikeout-walk ratio
