null null

Baseball null Rajai Davis did all he could, but the Indians' historic win streak is officially over at 14 games.Davis became the second player in this season to hit for the cycle, joining the Braves' Freddie Freeman. Davis went 4 for 5 with two RBIs and two runs scored against the Blue Jays, his former team. He did it in reverse order, leading off the game with a home run followed by an RBI triple in the third and a double in the seventh inning.

He's the sixth player in history to hit for the cycle in reverse order and the first Indians player to do it since Travis Hafner (Aug. 14, 2003, vs. Twins). The Blue Jays' rally provided the Toronto faithful with plenty of excitement in the 9-6 win. The Tribe trailed 5-4 entering the seventh inning but tagged the recently called-up Drew Hutchinson for two runs on three hits to take a 6-5 lead. On the first pitch of the bottom half of the inning, MVP candidate Josh Donaldson launched a 431-foot solo homer to tie the game at six.Just an inning later Donaldson drove in Ezequiel Carrera from second after a review of the close call at home plate was overturned, giving the Jays a 7-6 lead. A two-run double by Michael Saunders would give Toronto all the breathing room closer Roberto Osuna would need to end the Indians' win streak.
