Mariners Win Championship Series:
It's party time in Seattle, confetti is flying and the city's residents are smiling.
The Seattle Mariners have reached the peak in capturing the 2021 Championship Series. They defeated the Miami Marlins 5-2 at Safeco Field to officially wrap up the series 4-2.
Asked how it feels to be champion, right fielder Avisail Garcia was to the point.
"It feels great, like a million bucks. I'm so happy right now, not just for me but for all the guys," he said. "We put a lot of work into this and deserve to be champions."
The team is planning a victory parade and fan appreciation day later in the week.
Seattle finished the regular season 98-64 and claimed first place in the American League Western Division.
