The Indians were obviously dominant over the last few weeks before finally succumbing to the Royals, 4-3, on Friday night. They couldn't have won 22 straight games without that as a prerequisite. But you may not realize just how dominant they were.

Let your eyes feast upon all those glorious facts and many more in the chart below. Click here for a full-size image.
