Sights and Sounds from the Mariner’s monumental 2-1 win over the A’s

Give it to the Seattle Mariners for ending their 20-year playoff drought in grand fashion. Carl Raleigh’s walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning in front of a sold-out T-Mobile Park ended the playoff draught and unleashed a statewide celebration.

Raleigh’s monumental home run clinched a second wild card berth in franchise history.

When asked about his hit Raleigh was humble but assured that this was the Mariner’s moment.

“The moment I knew it was fair, I just looked at the dugout and everyone was jumping up and down,” Raleigh said. “It’s not really a pressure moment. We’re having fun and playing baseball. That’s the way you have to look at it.”


An outstanding pitching performance by   Logan Gilbert put the Mariners in a position to return to the postseason. Gilbert was truly magnificent, pitching 8.0 innings, and allowing just 1 run 3 hits, 2 walks, and one home run while striking 4 batters on 101 pitches, 64 of which were strikes. The eight innings pitched was a career-long for Gilbert who also reached 300 innings in the third inning. Gilbert is the 3rd fastest pitcher in franchise history.
