1913 World Series Revisited- Philadelphia A’s vs NY Giants Game #1

The 1913 World Series pitted the A’s vs the Giants. This was the 3rd straight World Series for the Giants, and would unfortunately be their 3rd straight World Series loss. A feat that hasn’t been matched since.

I think this time the Giant’s pitching will contain the A’s hitters and give them the World Series Revisited Championship.

The Philadelphia A’s committed 5 errors, 3 in a 3 run Giant 6th inning, giving the NY Giants the Game 1 victory. Rube Marquard gave up 10 hits, but didn’t walk a batter, while striking out 6.
