Jose Ramirez was a perfect 4-for-4 and scored the game-winning run in the 10th inning of Thursday's win over the Royals.

Ramirez had a pair of doubles among his four hits, including a two-bagger to lead off the 10th inning. After an Edwin Encarnacion walk, Jay Bruce pulled a ball fair into the right field corner, allowing Ramirez to race around to score and give the Indians their American League-record 22nd consecutive win. The 24-year-old ranks fourth in the AL in both runs (97) and batting average (.314), and his .573 slugging percentage is actually third-best in the league. With as good as the Indians have been, Ramirez is shaping up to garner some MVP votes this fall.
