Box Score of the Week

The then California Angels took on the Seattle Mariners - October 2, 1995.


On August 9, 1995, the Angels led the A.L. West by 11 games. Seven weeks later, they trailed by three games, a 14-game swing that rivaled the epic Boston Red Sox collapse in 1978. But the Angels recovered, winning the final five games of the season, tying the Seattle Mariners for the division lead and forcing a one-game playoff. 

Behind Randy Johnson, the Mariners routed the Angels in that October 2nd contest, earning their first playoff birth in the franchise's 19th season in existence.
