2005 Seattle Mariners Season
The Seattle Mariners 2005 season was their 29th since the franchise creation, and their second consecutive season finishing at the bottom of the American League West, finishing with a record of 69-93 (.426). They only had one player in the 2005 All-Star Game, who was Ichiro Suzuki with his fifth selection for the All-Star Game.
Over the course of the disappointing season, the Mariners managed to have their longest winning streak over the course of a four game series with the Angels (7 - 10 July), while having two losing streaks of seven between 30 April - 8 May / 25 June - 2 July.
