In one of the most dominant pitching performances in postseason history, Roger Clemens struck out an ALCS-record fifteen 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.

Series quotes

A slow roller but Martinez doesn't run well, Jeter up with it...start spreading the News, New York, New York!
Bob Costas , calling the final out of the series.
It was total dominance.
Joe Torre , on Roger Clemens' fifteen strikeout, one-hit shutout in Game 4.

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.

Aftermath

Alex Rodriguez would leave the Mariners for the Texas Rangers after this series for a ten-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, four games to one.

The Mariners returned to the ALCS the following season, after they broke the Yankees' record for regular season wins with 116. However, they fared worse in a rematch with the Yankees and were dispatched in five games.
