It was a classic ending to a classic World Series. The D'backs won their first title in a Game 7 thriller, scoring twice in the ninth off Mariano Rivera to stun the three-time defending champion Yankees 3-2. CNNSI.com's John Donovan says the unlikely ending cemented the series as a true Fall Classic.
