World Series Notes

October 26, 2019

The Astros helped Fox and won (4-1) at Washington in #3, to perhaps get back into the ’19 World Series, still trailing 2 games to 1, in what has been an all road team World Series, to this point.

This is in contrast to the last World Series (1933), in which a Washington team gained entry (no need to add D.C. as the Seattle, (Washington) Mariners are the only one of baseball’s 30 teams, never to have gained World Series entry), when the home team won the first three games.

Then, the New York Giants playing at home won the first two games, before the Washington Senators won game 3 at home.

In game 1 in both World Series 86 years apart, the home team took a (2-0) lead in the bottom of the first inning. The Giants in ’33 went on to win, not so, the ’19 Astros.

A similarity in the two game 2’s, the winning team, the Giants in ’33 and Nationals in ’19 had a 6 run inning, to take the lead to stay.

In game 3 both times, the team trailing 2 games to none, the Senators at home in ’33 and the Astros, also in Washington, but of course as a road team, won by similar scores. (Wash (4-0) in ’33, Houston (4-1) last night).

34 years ago Dane Iorg, pictured above as a St. Louis Cardinals’ player, with whom he won the ’82 World Series, got THE big hit vs them in #6 ’85 W.S. as a pinch hitter for the Kansas City Royals.
