The game-winning hit by Edgar Martinez in Game 5, which drove home Ken Griffey Jr. to win the game in the 11th inning, clinched a series win for the Mariners, served as a powerful impetus to preserve baseball in Seattle, and has since become an iconic moment in the history of the team. Edgar Martinez drove in Ken Griffey Jr. to win the game in the 11th inning.
