1983 Recording his 39th save, Royals' closer Dan Quisenberry breaks John Hiller's single-season record. The submariner gets the last two outs in a 4-3 victory over the Angels.
1996 Alex Rodriguez became the first player in Mariners history to collect 200 hits in a season.

2008 Francisco Rodriguez, striking out Raul Ibanez on a 3-2 changeup in the Angels' 5-2 victory over the Mariners, earns his 58th save to break the single-season record. K-Rod surpasses the mark established in 1990 by White Sox closer Bobby Thigpen.
2009 Ichiro Suzuki becomes the first player in major league history to collect 200 hits in nine consecutive seasons when he beats out an infield single in the Mariners' 5-0 nightcap victory over Texas at the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. The right-fielder had been tied with Wee Willie Keeler, who had eight straight years with 200 or more hits playing for the National League franchises in Baltimore and Brooklyn from 1894-1901.
