First up, April 11, as the Mariner erase a 7-0 deficit against the Toronto Blue Jays and win the game 8-7 on a two-run single in the bottom of the ninth by Luis Rodriguez. The rally was just shy of the Club record, which was an 8-run comeback against the Angels in 1996.

Luis Rodriguez once again strikes gold in highlights of the third game. September 14 against the New York Yankees, the score is tied 1-1 into extra innings. Rodriguez sends Mariners fans home happy when he led off the 12th inning with a solo homer for the Mariners 2-1 win.
