Arizona Diamondbacks first title is remembered as one of the greatest World Series of all time, as the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the Yankees in seven games. Experience each moment from this remarkable victory. PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks found their own mystique and aura.
After being beaten in extra inning games twice in New York, the Arizona Diamondbacks got late inning revenge and a World Championship, too.
Luis Gonzalez hit a RBI single with one out in the ninth inning Sunday night off super closer Mariano Rivera to give the expansion Arizona Diamondbacks their first World Series win and upend the three-time defending champion Yankees.
"From Day One, our goal wasn't to get to the World Series. It was to win it," Gonzalez said.
The Arizona Diamondbacks wear purple, not classic pinstripes, and have a swimming pool in right field. The franchise is now the youngest to win a World Championship. The Yankees are older than the state of Arizona.
