Death. Taxes. Diamondbacks beat Yankees in Phoenix.

In a rematch of the 2001 World Series, the D-backs finished off a two-game sweep of the Yankees with a 3-2 win at Chase Field on Wednesday. The D-backs famously beat the Yankees in seven games in the '01 series, winning all four of their matchups in Phoenix when Chase Field was known as Bank One Ballpark.

The difference in Wednesday's game was ultimately a solo home run from Ketel Marte in the fourth inning that put the D-backs ahead 3-0. The Yankees scored in the sixth and eighth innings but were unable to pull even. Greg Holland sealed the win in the ninth inning, earning his second save in as many games.

The D-backs beat the Yankees 3-1 on Tuesday night thanks to a stellar outing from pitcher Zack Greinke.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone was ejected in the seventh inning of Wednesday's game after he appeared to believe shortstop Tyler Wade was hit by a pitch. Replays showed Wade was not hit.

The win moved the Diamondbacks to 18-13 this season, good for second place in the National League West division and 1.5 games behind the division-leading Dodgers. The D-backs have won 12 of their last 16 games.
