Another win, another dominating performance from an Indians starting pitcher.



Carlos Carrasco was again terrific and the Indians downed the Toronto Blue Jays 4-1 Thursday night, notching their 13th straight win.



The Indians’ 13 straight wins ties a franchise record and makes them the first American League team to win at least 13 games in a row since the Oakland A’s won 20 straight in 2002.



Carrasco (4-2, 2.56 ERA) threw 7 1/3 innings, struck out 14 and allowed one run on three hits. Bryan Shaw finished the eighth and Cody Allen notched his 17th save. During the 13-game winning streak, Indians starting pitchers are 10-0 with a 1.86 ERA.



The Indians (48-30) took an early lead off Blue Jays knuckleballer R.A. Dickey. Rajai Davis first hit a solo home run in the second.  Jason Kipnis, also jumping on the first pitch, belted a solo shot of his own in the third, his 11th home run of the season. Jose Ramirez later singled home Mike Napoli, who doubled, and in the ninth Tyler Paquin added an RBI-triple.
