The slogan for the 1995 Seattle Mariners™ was "Refuse to Lose", and as if to put an exclamation point to it, here was their ace, Randy Johnson, on for his first relief appearance in over two years. The mission? Stop the Yankees™ in their first post-season appearance in 14 years. For the Mariners, the stakes seemed even higher-this was their first post-season apperance in franchise history. It's October 8, 1995, the fifth and deciding game of the American League™ Division Series. It's 4-4 in the 9th, two on and none out when The Big Unit enters. He had hurled 7 innings just 48 hours earlier. The crowd rocks the Kingdome with on-your-feet cheering, the likes of which Seattle had not seen before. Johnson sets down Wade Boggs, Bernie Williams (seen batting here), and Paul O'Neill, and shuts the door in the 10th and 11th too. Finally, in the bottom of the 11th, an Edgar Martinez double drives home Ken Griffey Jr., and the Mariners move on!
