• Summary: Mike Hargrove won his final game as Mariners manager after abruptly resigning earlier in the day.
• Turning point: Jose Guillen hit a game-tying homer in the eighth and a go-ahead single in the ninth.
• Hero: Guillen hit the first pitch he saw in the eighth into the right field bleachers to tie the game.
• Unsung hero: All-Star closer J.J. Putz pitched a perfect inning for the win.
• Figure this: Frank Thomas hit his 501st homer in a losing cause.
• Quotable: "We can all continue to speculate about things like that, but it won't take us anywhere. Since then, I've honestly expressed my feelings to him and he's listened to them honorably and gentlemanly like." -- Ichiro, on Hargrove's departure, through an interpreter
