In one of the most dominant pitching performances in postseason history, Roger Clemens struck out an ALCS-record 15 batters in a complete game one-hit shutout of the Mariners. Clemens carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning, when Seattle's Al Martin lined a leadoff double off first baseman Tino Martinez's glove for the Mariners' only hit of the game. Clemens would have become just the second person in postseason history to throw a no-hitter, joining fellow Yankee Don Larsen, who threw a perfect game against the Brooklyn Dodgers in Game 5 of the 1956 World Series.

Quotes of the Series

Television coverage

Game 6 is the last baseball game that NBC has televised to date. In Houston, due to the coverage of the 2000 Presidential Debate, KPRC-TV elected to carry NBC News' coverage of the debate while KNWS-TV carried NBC's final baseball game.


Alex Rodriguez would leave the Mariners for the Texas Rangers after this series for a 10 year, $250 million deal. Three seasons later, Rodriguez was traded to the Yankees.

The Yankees would go on to beat the New York Mets in the first Subway Series since 1956, 4 games to 1.
