Game 1: Logan Gilbert keeps it close, and the offense rallies in the ninth. Final 5-4 Mariners

Logan Gilbert wasn't his best in this game, but he was still able to go 6 innings and only give up three earned runs while striking out one Yankee. Gilbert kept it close for the Mariners which turned out to be huge later on. Dominic Canzone got the Mariners on the board with a home run in the 8th inning. The Mariners scored four runs in the 9th inning off of Clay Holmes, who has been untouchable this year. Literally, he hadn't given up an earned run this season. Ty France drove in the game-winning run and Andres Munoz shut the Yankees down in the bottom of the 9th.

Game 2: Bryan Woo goes 6 scoreless, Dylan Moore hits two home runs. Final Mariners 6-3

Bryan Woo was absolutely dominant against the Yankees. Going 6 innings giving up no runs and striking out 6. Woo only needed 77 pitches to get through 6 innings. The Mariner's offense hit 4 home runs in this one, two from Dylan Moore, Ty France, and Luke Raley each with one. Gleybor Torres would hit a three-run home run off of Trent Thornton in the 7th inning to make it 4-3 Mariners. But Luke Raley would hit a home run in the 8th and Dylan Moore would hit his second in the 9th. Munoz gets his 10th save.

Game 3: Bryce Miller gives up the long ball, Final Yankees 3-7

Bryce Miller goes 6 innings giving up 5 runs and striking out 4 batters. He gave up all of his runs on long balls to the Yankees superstars. In the 1st inning, he gave up a 2 run home run to Aaron Judge. Juan Soto would add a 2 run home run in the 3rd and a solo home run in the 6th inning. The Mariners had some traffic on the bases but left 6 runners on base. Cal Raleigh drove in the three runs for the Mariners with a 3-run home run in the top of the 8th to make it 3-5 Yankees. Alex Verdugo would dash the Mariners hopes with a 2-run home run in the 8th to make it 3-7 for their first win of the series.

Game 4: Mariners can't put it together en route to 5-0 loss

The Mariners just couldn't seem to put anything together on offense in the finale. Castillo continually worked out of trouble, giving the Mariners a chance to hit their way into the game. Unfortunately, the Mariners had just three hits and four walks all game, with two of those hits and two of the walks coming against Holmes late. Gil dominated the Mariners, and Soto and Judge are just too good to hold down for a long period of time.
