The Indians' rookies dressed up as a group of superheroes for their flight to Seattle

Nobody's doing better these days than the Cleveland Indians. Their 4-1 win over the Angels on Thursday was their 27th in 28 games, which is just ridiculous. That American League-record 22-game winning streak that ended last week was also quite an accomplishment.
Sitting atop the AL at 96-57, one might say the Indians have been playing like a team of superheroes for quite some time now. And on Thursday, several members of the club dressed the part.

From left to right, that powerful group pictured above includes Gio Urshela as Superman, Tyler Olson as Spider-Man, Francisco Mejía as the Flash, Mike Clevinger as Thor, Yandy Díaz as the Hulk, Ryan Merritt as Iron Man, Greg Allen as Deadpool, Nick Goody as Black Hole, Tyler Naquin as Batman and Erik González as Captain America.
Nicely done, everybody. Strong effort.
