Though the Mariners had homefield advantage, unlike the 2000 ALCS where the Yankees had homefield advantage, the Yankees' mystique after their miraculous comeback against Oakland proved too overpowering and the Yankees won the first two games in Seattle.

However, he turned out to be wrong as the Yankees closed out the series in New York, beating the Mariners 4 games to 1. The Series was capped off by a game-winning homerun by Alfonso Soriano in Game 4.
