Why the Yankees won: The Yankees blitzed Padres pitchers, hitting .309 in four games. Ricky Ledee had six hits in 10 at-bats.

Why the Padres lost: The Padres fell behind in three of the four games and never could recover, thanks a pitching staff that had a 5.82 ERA.

Memorable moment: Tino Martinez's grand slam in a seven-run seventh inning of Game 1 broke a tie and changed the Series.

Key stat: 3. The number of saves for the great Mariano Rivera.
