CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Indians have made several hundred customers of a window and home repair business very happy now that the team has extended its winning streak to 15 games. reports Cleveland-based Universal Windows Direct offered customers in July free products and services, to include windows, doors, siding, roofs and other repairs, if the Indians put together a 15-game winning streak this season. According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, the company spent $75,000 for insurance to cover the $1.7 million in sales.

Company president Chad Howman says more than 250 orders were placed in July in a promotion marking the company's 15th year in business.

And the hometown team delivered. The Indians, first in the American League Central division, beat the last-place Chicago White Sox 11-2 Thursday night to set a franchise record with their 15th straight win.
