Eighteen years ago today the Indians were losing to the Mariners 14-2 in the 7th inning before mounting the biggest comeback in MLB history, overcoming the 12-run deficit to win 15-14 in 11 innings.

Click below to relive the game (if the video doesn't work, go to this link instead) with compiled calls from Tom Hamilton and crew taking you through every Indians hit that created the magic, ending with Jolbert Cabrera (yeah, him) sending the crowd at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario home happy and as witnesses to history. It will give you serious chills all over again.
