|Edgar Martinez Comes Through -- October 8, 1995
|Mariners DH Edgar Martinez had already staked his claim to playoff glory with two home runs and seven RBIs in Game Four of the 1995 ALDS against the New York Yankees. His offensive fireworks gave Seattle -- who had lost the first two games of the five-game series -- a chance to complete a miraculous comeback against the powerful Bronx Bombers. Game Five was an epic struggle, deadlocked until Randy Johnson allowed the Yankees to score in the top of the eleventh. But the Mariners clawed back against the Yankees' Jack McDowell. Joey Cora beat out a bunt to lead off the bottom of the inning, and moved to third on a Ken Griffey, Jr. single. That set the stage for Martinez, who stroked a double down the left-field line, driving in both runners and giving Seattle their first playoff series win in franchise history.

|Ken Griffey, Jr. -- 1995
Martinez's heroics in the 1995 Division Series wouldn't have happened if it weren't for the remarkable performance turned in by superstar slugger Ken Griffey, Jr. "The Kid" hit .391 while slugging five homers in five games, tying a postseason series record set by Yankee legend Reggie Jackson in a six-game World Series in 1977.

|1995: "Refuse to Lose"
1995 was the season that saved baseball in Seattle. Capping a miraculous September surge that saw them end the season tied with Anaheim, the Mariners earned the first post-season berth in franchise history by thumping the Angels in a one-game playoff at the Kingdome. After dropping the opening two stanzas of their five-game ALDS matchup with the Yankees, the Mariners pulled off three straight dramatic wins. In the classic Game Five the M's rallied from an early deficit against Yanks starter David Cone to force extra innings before Martinez brought them back one last time on a two-run 11th inning double, inspiring pandemonium at the Kingdome. Seattle eventually succumbed to a heavily favored Cleveland juggernaut in the League Championship series, but not before throwing a scare into the Indians by extending them to six hard-fought games.
