Attendance - 45,818 / Duration - 4:07
- Extra-inning game. Mariners won in the bottom of the 11th inning.
- Freddy Garcia pitched eight solid innings, giving up only two runs and striking out five.
- John Olerud and Stan Javier both hit doubles for the Mariners.
- An incident late in the game between Indians shortstop Omar Vizquel and Mariners reliever Arthur Rhodes almost caused a brawl. Here is an excerpt from a random news-source:
"Vizquel complained to the umpire about diamond earrings worn by Seattle reliever Arthur Rhodes. Vizquel said the sunlight sparkling in the earrings was distracting him at the plate. The umpires asked Rhodes to remove the earrings and Rhodes protested. Both benches cleared and Rhodes was ejected, though no punches were thrown."
