Mariners win 85th game, Hernandez closes season 19-5

Of course Ken Griffey Jr. was going to get that single in the eighth. How else to cap off this festive season that, while it did not lead to any playoffs, still marks quite the turnaround from the disaster we saw in 2008.
Griffey singled up the middle, received a loud ovation as he was replaced by a pinch-runner, then came out of the dugout for a curtain call. Is it curtains for Griffey? We’ll see. It’s curtains for the Mariners, who won, 4-3, to finish with 85 victories.
Felix Hernandez finishes 19-5 with a 2.49 ERA. Quite a season for him.
