Why the Yankees won: The Bombers' offense outscored the Giants 16-2 in the first two games, but the real star was pitcher Lefty Gomez (2-0, 1.50 ERA, 2 CGs).

Why the Giants lost: Aside from their Game 4 victory, they managed only five runs and hit only .209 in the other four games combined.

Memorable moment: In the ninth inning of Game 4, his last in the Fall Classic, Carl Hubbell surrendered Lou Gehrig's final World Series HR.

Key stat: 0. The number of errors committed by the Yankees, making them the Series' first-ever errorless team.
