What was the final score august 5th, 2001 between the cleveland indians and the seattle mariners?

"The Comeback" happens on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball as the Cleveland Indians score 13 unanswered runs to shock the Seattle Mariners, 15-14, in 11 innings.

The date was Aug. 5, 2001. It was a Sunday night in Cleveland. The Indians were playing the Seattle Mariners, the team with the best record in baseball, and the Mariners had just taken a 14-2 lead. Then it started: One of the greatest comebacks in Indians' history.

The Tribe scored three runs in the seventh inning. Then they scored four more in the eighth. Facing a 14-9 deficit in the ninth inning, completing the comeback seemed unlikely, especially after there were two outs in the inning and only one runner on -- Eddie Taubensee, who singled to start the inning.

But Marty Cordova doubled, keeping the rally alive with runners on second and third. After Seattle walked the next batter, Einar Diaz drove in two runs with a single, closing the gap to three. After a walk to load the bases, Omar Vizquel strolled to the plate, and hit a bases-clearing triple, capping off the improbable comeback, making a new game and sending the contest into extra innings. The Indians ended up winning the game in the 11th inning thanks to Jolbert Cabrera.

In latest buzz, Cleveland beat Detroit 5-3 on Wednesday afternoon for the team's 21st straight win, breaking the American League record.

"You know everyone talks about the streak and being consumed with it," rightfielder Jay Bruce told MLB.com. "What consumes us is the daily kind of schedule and game we have to get ready for."

The major league record is 26 straight wins by the New York Giants in 1916, though there was a tie during that streak as well. To claim that record, Cleveland will have to sweep the Kansas City Royals at home before taking two games from the Los Angeles Angels in Anaheim, Calif. Read more at NPR.
