Defending Champs Seattle Overwhelm Angels

Seattle eliminated Anaheim 4 games to 0 in a semi-finals series.  While there were many stars for the Mariners in this short series, Yadier Molina had a nice series going 8 for 15 (.533) with 3 doubles, 2 runs and 5 ribbies.

Game 1 - Seattle 5, Anaheim 4
Felix Hernandez pitched 7+ innings for the win, Molina and Braun both had three hits; Chipper Jones hits a homer and collects three hits for the Angels.

Game 2 - Seattle 9, Anaheim 6
Samardzija pitches just good enough for the victory, Fernando Rodriguez picked up his second straight save; Quentin and Phillips homers for Seattle while Moss homers for Anaheim.

Game 3 - Seattle 2, Anaheim 0
Justin Verlander continued his post season dominance with a CG 2-hit shutout.  Verlander is 9-0 in the post season over the past two years.  Longoria and Pujols hit solo homers to account for all the scoring.

Game 4 - Seattle 7, Anaheim 3
Felix Hernandez pitched 8+ strong innings for the victory while the Mariners jumped on losing pitcher Gio Gonzalez for 6 hits, 7 walks and 6 runs over 6 innings.  Molina and Chris Young both drove in three runs for Seattle.

Seattle now will face the winner of the Los Angeles-Oakland series for the 2012 Millennium World Series.
