MLB roundup: Lindor lifts Indians to sweep of Angels

(TSX / STATS) -- ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Francisco Lindor hit a decisive three-run home run in the fifth inning that lifted the Cleveland Indians to a 4-1 victory and a three-game sweep of the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday afternoon.

It was the Indians' fifth win in a row, 27th win in 28 games, and their 15th straight victory on the road. The major league record for consecutive road wins is 21, held by the 1983-84 Detroit Tigers (four wins to finish the 1983 season and 17 to start 1984).

Having wrapped up the American League Central crown, the Indians have their eyes on catching the Dodgers for the best record in the majors and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs and World Series. The Dodgers also won Thursday and remain one game up on Cleveland.
