They have also hit more home runs during the streak (38) than they've given up runs (35).   And they've outscored their opponents during the streak 139-35 for a Pythagorean record of 20-1.

If the Indians are actually a 100 win team over the course of the year, this streak would have about a 1-25,000 chance of occurring.   And a 22 game winning streak by a 100 win baseball team would have the same odds as a 72 win NBA team going 82-0, given equal probabilities of winning each game assuming the other team was a .500 team.

In other words, (100/162)^22 is approximately equal to (72/82)^82

This is history.   And it guarantees them nothing in three weeks, they are far more likely to lose in the playoffs/Series than they are to win the whole thing.

By the way, this was all done without Andrew Miller...
