The box score below is an accurate record of events for the baseball contest played on October 2, 1995 at Kingdome. The Seattle Mariners defeated the California Angels and the box score is "ready to surrender its truth to the knowing eye."
"The fans really helped me. When I first got to Seattle, if you wanted to see a lot of people, you had to go to a Seahwaks game. But this season, they came out and supported us. They are a big part of this. I had a lot of emotion built up because of them, and I pitch on emotion anyway." - Starting / Winning Pitcher Randy Johnson (Post Game Interview, 10/02/1995)

Fred Schwed, Jr., in How to Watch a Baseball Game (1957) wrote our favorite baseball box score quote, "The baseball box score is the pithiest form of written communication in America today. It is abbreviated history. It is two or three hours (the box score even gives that item to the minute) of complex activity, virtually inscribed on the head of a pin, yet no knowing reader suffers from eyestrain."
