View Full Version : A Look Back - Remember This Game?

Back in 2001.

The Cleveland Indians rallied from 12 runs down in the seventh inning -- taking their only lead of the game on Jolbert Cabrera (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/baseball/mlb/ml/players/5979/)'s game-winning single in the bottom of the 11th -- and stunned the Mariners, 15-14.


The funny thing is that the Mariners would've had the most wins in baseball history if they didn't blow this game. It seemed like it was impossible to lose this one.

I remember the next day ESPN replayed this as an "instant classic" on ESPN Classic.

They still play this game from time to time, I remember catching it last summer. What a game, unbelievable ending.

If anybody ever needs an explanation/reason to stay till the end of a game, this is it.

Our buddy Jose Paniagua took the loss. Pitched one third of an inning gave up three hits and one run.

Yeah, I remember, it was on Sunday Night Baseball, I specifically remember the Vizquel triple, it was unreal

I remember my dad and I were listening to that game as we were driving to Chicago and when it got to become a blowout we turned that **** off.

When we finally got to the hotel we flipped on ESPN and caught the last inning...freaking amazing. :o:

Also I remember I was cheering on Cleveland to get close because Sasaki was on my fantasy league and he could get a save and then... :thud:

But I think Sweet Lou put him in a tough spot

I remember that. We also stole one from Seattle in aught 1, contributing to spoiling their bid for 117 wins. We came back in the ninth off Sasaki I believe. I remember someone hit a GR double temporarily delaying the tying or go-ahead run and Hawk got worked up, "daaaaaaaad gummit!" Then later added, "you know what I wanted to say there DJ!"
