Boston Red Sox vs. Seattle Mariners Tickets
About Boston Red Sox vs. Seattle Mariners
There is hardly any comparison between the Boston Red Sox and the Seattle Mariners. Established 76 years apart, the two franchises have followed a radically different path to glory. The Red Sox, of course, have won eight World Series Championships, while the Mariners have yet to win their first. The Red Sox dominate the Mariners in the head-to-head record too. This is however not to suggest that their games have been one-sided. Some of the greatest moments in the MLB have been when the Red Sox and Mariners took the field.
Baseball fans would testify that it doesn’t take an established or historic rivalry to produce some of the most memorable moments on the field. The Red Sox and the Mariners games are a testimony to this.
Chris Bosio’s No-Hitter - It was April 22, 1993, and the Mariners fans knew they were in trouble. Chris Bosio’s walk to Ernie Riles and then to Carlos Quintana put him in early trouble. Bosio, however, got Mike Greenwell to bounce into a 4-6-3 double play and struck out Andre Dawson. This put the Mariners fans at ease and Bosio, for the next eight innings, was perfect.
Longest Game - It was September 3, 1981, and the Mariners were cruising at Fenway Park. Through seven innings, they had a four-run lead, when things started to fall apart. Red Sox Joe Rudi got going with an RBI single off Mike Parrott in the eighth inning. Boston then scored three in the ninth against Bryan Clark, Dick Drago and Shane Rawley. For the next 10 innings, the score was tied at 7-7, when the game was suspended because of American League curfew rules. The two teams got back on the field the next day, and the play resumed in the 20th inning. Joe Simpson drove home Dave Henderson with a triple off Bob Stanley. Jerry Remy’s sixth hit of the game was part of Boston’s rally to load the bases in the bottom of the 20th, but Jim Rice grounded out to end the marathon and Seattle won 8-7. The game lasted for 6 hours and 1 minute.
