There have been 5,912 total games played by the Seattle Mariners, and throughout their history there have been 10 games that have stood out to a lot of people that they said were the greatest in Mariners history.
I’ve decided to name my top 10 favorite Mariners games of all time that have both stood out to me and that mean something to me as well.
10. 22 run putout against the Tigers (April 29, 1999)
This game is at number 10 for a good reason. The Mariners seemed to scored 10+ the most in 1999 but in one game against the Detroit Tigers 10+ wasn’t good enough. After 4 innings in this game the game looked to be a low scoring game, until the Tigers scored 4 runs in the top of the fifth inning.
That didn’t get the Mariners down though, they came back in the bottom of the fifth and scored a franchise high 11 runs and added 6 more in the bottom of the sixth.
Ken Griffey, Jr., hit two home runs and drove in 6 as the Mariners won 22-6.
9. Mariners final game in the Kingdome (June 27, 1999)
This one is remembered by a lot of Mariner fans. The last and final game in the Kingdome for the Mariners. They faced the Texas Rangers. The Rangers jumped out to a 2-0 lead but in the bottom of the first Griffey did it, he hit one final Kingdome home run with Brian Hunter and Alex Rodriguez on base to put the Mariners up 3-2.
They didn’t look back after that. Jr was the player of the game as he hit one final homer in the Kingdome but he made one more spectacular home run robbing catch. He robbed Juan Gonzalez of a 2-run home run that would have put the Rangers up in the game. This game also is special to me since I was at that game and the next day I re-watched it.
