  • 1991 – Alvin Davis hits career Kingdome home run #100, the first player to accomplish the feat. The HR completes the Mariners 6-5 win versus Detroit.
  • 1994 – Ken Griffey Jr. hits a grand slam HR off Bruce Hurst and collects a career high 6 RBI in a 17-9 loss at Texas.
  • 1998 – In his second game since returning from the disabled list, Jay Buhner collects his 18th two home run game of his career.  The Mariners lose to Oakland 7-3.
  • 2000 – Mariners play rain-shortened game at Kansas City; M’s win, 7-0, when game ends after top of 6th; 5-9 hitters combine to bat 8×11 with 7 runs scored and 3 RBI.

First inning

Elvis Andrus comes up with a one-out single, but Felix gets a pair of fielder’s choice ground balls for force outs at second.

M’s go down 1-2-3 with Cano striking out.

Mariners 0, Rangers 0

Second inning

Felix turns a 1-4-3 double play to get out out of the inning after giving up a lead-off single to Alex Rios.

M’s go 1-2-3 again

Mariners 0, Rangers 0

Third inning

Felix goes 1-2-3

Mike Zunino singled to start the inning. Brad Miller grounded into a fielder’s choice. Miller then was thrown out on a steal attempt that was clearly a botched hit and run or miscommunication of sorts. Gillespie struck out to end the inning.

Mariners 0, Rangers 0

Fourth inning

1-2-3 inning for Felix

1-2-3 inning for Tepesch

Fifth inning

yes, more 1-2-3 time for both pitchers.

Tepesch has faced one batter over the minimum – a fancy way of saying the M’s have one hit.

Mariners 0, Rangers 0

Sixth inning

1-2-3 for Felix

Zunino leads off with a double.  But Brad Miller can’t get a bunt down and strikes out. When you are hitting .182, failing to get sac bunts down are not ideal. Gillespie moves the runner over with a ground ball. But with two outs, James Jones flew out to right.

Mariners 0, Rangers 0

Seventh inning

From the Mariners’ media relations …. Felix has a scoreless streak of 16 consecutive innings, but the Mariners have not scored a run for him in the last 13 innings.

Make that 17  as he shakes off a one-out hit from Choo and gets Beltre and Rios to end the inning. He’s at 85 pitches.

M’s have runners on first and second with one out. Washington pulls Tepesch at 73 pitches. Jason Frasor comes in and strikes outs pinch hitter Endy Chavez and Dustin Ackley.

Mariners 0, Rangers 0
