Cleveland Indians clinch American League Central Division Championship with Minnesota Twins' loss

Royals end Indians unbeaten run

Lorenzo Cain had three hits and Alcides Escobar and Brandon Moss homered as the Kansas City Royals halted the Cleveland Indians' American League-record 22-game winning streak with a 4-3 victory.

They wrapped up the franchise's ninth overall AL Central crown on September 16 with an 8-4 victory over the Kansas City Royals coupled the second-place Minnesota Twins' 7-2 home loss to Toronto.

Dodgers 7, Nationals 0: Alex Wood allowed just three hits in six scoreless innings and was backed by three early home runs as Los Angeles crushed Washington in a showdown of first-place teams with the two best records in the National League.

Jesse Winker homered, and Romano (5-6) allowed only five hits and had six strikeouts with no walks.

Hendricks (7-5) struck out five and walked one in his third victory since coming off the disabled list on August 26.

PHILADELPHIA - Rookie Jorge Alfaro hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the bottom of the sixth inning to push Philadelphia past Oakland.

The Angels also got offensive help from Justin Upton, who doubled twice, drove in one and scored twice, and Andrelton Simmons, who had two singles and two RBIs. Anthony Rizzo added two hits while Dexter Fowler topped St. Louis with a pair.

Dallas Keuchel (13-4) worked six strong innings and Joe Musgrove provided effective relief work in Houston's win.

The Astros (90-58) reached 90 victories in a season for the first time since 2004.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Rick Porcello took a shutout into the eighth inning to help Boston win its third straight game. Tyler Collins, whose fifth home run of the season in the seventh gave Detroit a brief 2-1 lead, walked on a 3-2 pitch by lefty reliever Aaron Bummer. Abraham Almonte put the Indians ahead in the second inning via a run-scoring sacrifice fly, but the Royals responded with a solo shot by Gordon in the third.

The Tigers have lost seven of their last eight games.

Before their incredible winning streak, the Indians were one of the best teams in baseball that no one was talking about. His only hiccup was a solo homer to Freddie Freeman, his 27th, who had two of Atlanta's hits.

KC starter Jason Hammel took the loss.

Blue Jays 4, Twins 3: Josh Donaldson and Kevin Pillar each hit solo homers, and J.A. Happ pitched into the seventh inning to propel Toronto to a win against Minnesota.

Home-field advantage is something the Indians got plenty of experience with during their run to Game 7 of the 2016 World Series, as they held it in all three of their playoff series last fall, and that support extended over to this year when the team was on a recent historic run. Against the Royals on September 16, Lindor was 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored.

Zach Davies (17-9) never had his command and lasted just four innings - his shortest start of the season.
