TODAY'S THOUGHT

God wants to see prayers that are filled with genuine praise and thanksgiving for what He has done in the past. He wants our hearts to be filled with awe and gratitude for His blessings. He wants us to set up memorials in our hearts testifying to the provisions He has given us.

The Cleveland Indians won their 21st straight game today....

     CLEVELAND (AP) - The Cleveland Indians won their 21st straight game today, 5-3 over the Detroit Tigers, to set an AL winning-streak record and join only two other teams in the past 101 years to win that many consecutive games.
 
     Jay Bruce hit a three-run homer off Buck Farmer (4-3) and Mike Clevinger (10-5) won his fourth straight start as the Indians matched the 1935 Chicago Cubs for the second-longest streak since 1900. The run has put Cleveland within five wins of catching the 1916 New York Giants, who won 26 straight without a loss but whose century-old mark includes a tie.
 
     The Indians haven't lost in 20 days, and they've rarely been challenged during a late-season run. However, they had to overcome a costly error and rely on their bullpen to hold off the Tigers, who closed within 4-3.
 
     Roberto Perez added a homer in the seventh and four Cleveland relievers finished, with Cody Allen getting his 27th save.
 
     With the crowd of 29,346 standing and stomping, Allen retired Ian Kinsler for the final out, giving the Indians the league's longest streak since the AL was founded in 1901.

    MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Twins are second in the American League Central, 14 games behind Cleveland.  However they do currently hold a playoff birth as the second Wildcard team.  After last night's 16-0 win over San Diego and the Angels 1-0 loss to Houston, the Twins hold a two game edge over Los Angeles.

    The Twins and Padres will wrap up their brief two-game series at Target Field tonight. Ervin Santana (15-7, 3.45 ERA) will start for Minnesota, while San Diego will counter with rookie Dinelson Lamet (7-7, 4.32).

    MINNEAPOLIS - Vikings QB Sam Bradford has been named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance against New Orleans in the season opener. He went 27-of-32 passing for 346 yards with 3 TDs, 0 INTs and a 143.0 passer rating en route to a 29-19 win.

    Bradford set his career-high with a 143.0 passer rating and set a Vikings record for highest completion percentage in a season opener at 84.4%, also raking as the 3rd-best completion mark in NFL history in a season opener. Bradford is only the 3rd Vikings QB to pass for 300+ yards in an opener. Playing behind an offensive line with 5 new starters and rookie starters at center and running back the Vikings amassed 470 yards of total offense and were 9-of-14 (64%) on 3rd-down conversions without a turnover. The Vikings produced a 100-yard rusher (Dalvin Cook, 127), a 100-yard receiving (Adam Thielen, 157) and a 300-yard passer for the 1st time in team history in an opener and for the 10th time overall in franchise history.

    The NFC Player of the Week award is the first of Bradford's career and he is the first Vikings QB to take the honor since Brett Favre in the 2009 regular season finale vs. NY Giants (1/3/10). Bradford is the 11th different Vikings player under Mike Zimmer to win an NFC Player of the Week award.
