CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Indians can turn their attention back to clinching their division and playoff preparations.

Their historic winning streak is, well, history.

Cleveland had its AL-record run stopped at 22 straight games on Friday night as the Indians were beaten 4-3 by the Kansas City Royals, who became the first team to conquer the defending league champions since Aug. 23.

Jason Vargas (16-10) pitched into the sixth and Brandon Moss homered off Trevor Bauer (16-9) as the Royals ended baseball’s longest winning streak in 101 years. The Indians came within four of matching the overall record held by the 1916 New York Giants.

When Francisco Lindor struck out with a runner on first to end it, the sellout crowd gave the Indians a prolonged standing ovation.

YANKEES 8, ORIOLES 2: Didi Gregorius hit a tiebreaking two-run homer and drove in four runs, leading host New York past Baltimore for its fifth win in six games.

Luis Severino (13-6) allowed two runs on three hits in eight innings with seven strikeouts and a walk.

BLUE JAYS 4, TWINS 3: Josh Donaldson homered and drove in the go-ahead run in the seventh inning with an infield single that ricocheted off the mound, sending Toronto to a win at Minneapolis.
