World Series Redux Notes

August 8, 2022

All three of the past weekend’s inter-league series matched teams/franchises with multiple World Series clashes.

The Cardinals and Yankees have met in 5 World Series, the former winning in 1926, 1942 and 1964 and the latter triumphing in 1928 and 1943.

Pittsburgh (Pirates) won both W.S. meetings vs Baltimore (Orioles), each a 7 game win, the Roberto Clemente/Steve Blass brilliance led win in ’71 and Willie Stargell’s 2RHR highlighting the ’79 win.

When the Athletics were in Philadelphia and the Giants played in New York, the Athletics won World Series vs the Giants in 1911 and 1913. The Giants led by Christy Mathewson’s incredible 3 of 3 games/shutouts won vs the A’s in 1905.

In the 1989 World Series, marred by an earthquake before game 3, the Athletics won a 3rd straight vs the Giants–the A’s as Oakland and the Giants as San Francisco–sweeping S.F. in 4 straight games.
