Heredia launched a three-run homer in the second. He endured a ninth-pitch at-bat with two outs by blooping a single to right field in the 13th to extend the Mariners' rally. He took off from first to third on Doug Fister's wild pitch to Mike Zunino, allowing him to waltz in for the game's winning run.
"I think Guillermo's last at-bat typified the ballgame tonight," Mariners manager Scott Servais said. "In my opinion, the biggest play in the game was him going first to third on the wild pitch. Keeping his head up there and taking the extra base, allowing him to score the winning run there."
Heredia's 13th-inning at-bat with two outs was full of twists and turns. It started with him fouling off the first two pitches, taking three straight balls and then fouling three more pitches off before dumping a fastball down in the zone to the opposite field for a base hit.
"It was an interesting at-bat," Heredia said through interpreter Fernando Alcalà. "Obviously, a very critical at-bat because it would have been the last out of the game. It was just a matter of from the time I was in the on-deck circle, preparing and making sure I was ready when I got up there."
