History, Comments, Contributions[edit]

The 1931 Cleveland Indians went through the worst losing streak in franchise history, losing 12 straight games from May 7th to 21st. They were in first place with a record of 12-6 when it started, but were 9 1/2 games back by the time they won again. The streak completely ruined what was otherwise a decent season, as they still managed to finish two games above .500.
