Mariners bid to clinch elusive playoff spot in opener vs. A's

A baby born in early 2001, the last time the Seattle Mariners had champagne on ice in the clubhouse to celebrate clinching a playoff berth, would now be old enough to legally drink the bubbly.

The Mariners (85-70) reduced their magic number to one for an American League wild-card berth with a wild 10-9 victory in 11 innings against the visiting Texas Rangers on Thursday night.

That means the Mariners could snap their 20-season playoff drought -- the longest in the four major North American sports -- on Friday night. They could do it with a loss by the Baltimore Orioles (at the New York Yankees) or a victory in the opener of their three-game series against the visiting Oakland Athletics.
