Alan’s perfect record continued at Progressive Field today, as Alan moved to 7-0 on the season. Alan & Corey Kluber continue to be an unstoppable combination, dating back to Alan’s very first Indians game in 2013, when Kluber shut-out the Nationals 2-0.
There was a lot to celebrate at the ballpark today following the recent 22-game win streak and the Indians clinching of the AL Central late last night (not to mention it was Alan’s annual birthday game!). Alan and I enjoyed watching the Indians raise the AL Central Division Championship Flag during pregame while the fans applauded the team. Alan is aware of what has been going on this week, as he watched the recording of the walk-off for win #22, as well as the ovation after the win streak ended.
Alan didn’t get to run the bases postgame (it was cancelled so the Indians players could salute the crowd), but that was okay for Alan. He wanted to get home and put together the lego seaplane that he received from Grandma Debbie at yesterday’s party!
Before we left, we bought an’ AL Central Champs’ pin to go along with the Indians poker chip magnets I bought while attending game #20 of the streak. Alan plus good luck charms could spell doom for the Indians competition during the playoffs…
