Mariners break 21-year playoff drought and clinch wild card spot

For the first time since 2001, the sailors they’re heading to the playoffs. Seattle officially clinched a playoff spot with a dramatic win over the A’s on Friday night.

Cal Raleigh, a two-out pinch hitter in the bottom of the ninth inning, homered to right field to send the Mariners to the postseason in epic fashion.

In clinching the title, Seattle officially broke its 21-year postseason drought, which was the longest drought among the four major sports. That record now belongs to the Sacramento Kings, who haven’t made the NBA playoffs since 2007.
