In Game 1, Kevin Brown took the hill for the Padres and he was opposed by Yankee ace and ALCS MVP David Wells. The Yankees began the scoring in the 2nd inning, when rookie Ricky Ledee laced a 2 run double into the right field corner with the bases loaded. Wells was battered hard for the only time in the postseason beginning with the 3rd when Greg Vaughn homered to rightcenter with a man aboard tying the game up at 2 runs apiece. In the 5th, Tony Gwynn smashed a 2 run shot off the facing of the upper deck and that was followed up immediately by Vaughn's second dinger of the night. Trailing 5-2, the Yanks made their comeback in the 7th. Jorge Posada singled and Ledee walked ending the night for Brown. It turned out to be a bad move by Padres manager Bruce Bochy. New York took advantage of the Padres bullpen with a 3 run homer by Chuck Knoblauch that tied the game at 5. Later in the inning, a 2-2 count call by home plate umpire Rich Garcia would prove to be decisive. Mark Langston's pitch was shown on television replays to be a borderline pitch, which Rich Garcia called a ball. Tino Martinez would take advantage of Garcia's call and on the next pitch sent a grand slam into the upper deck making it a 9-5 lead. The Padres would only score one more run as the Yankees won game one 9-6.
