Yanks rally past Mariners, set up Subway Series
Despite sputtering into the postseason, the Yankees' train is rolling to the World Series for the fourth time in five years. Oh, and did we mention a Subway Series showdown with the crosstown rival Mets? The Yankees set up the first all-New York World Series in 44 years by holding off Seattle 9-7 in Game 6 of the ALCS at Yankee Stadium. Series MVP David Justice had the key blow, a go-ahead three-run homer in a six-run seventh to send New York to its 37th AL pennant.
