View Full Version : Worls Series Perfection?

When was the first time that 27 straight batters on a team were retired in a World Series?

One wants to say, the Dodgers by Don Larsen, 1956.
But I have a feeling you have another in mind.

You are correct in your second statement. I have something else in mind.
It was done before Larsen came along.

No takers here?
It took two pitchers to do it.

Was it in the early early days?

First half of the century, but not real, real early

somebody and Bevens?
I dont have a clue, but I'll offer kudos for a great question.

It's not Bevens

or the Red Sox vs. Phil. in 1916
or the Cards vs. Yanks in 1926

BB to the rescue. Good work!
It happened in games 2 & 3 of the 1926 WS. In game 2, Pete Alexander retired the last 21 Yankees, and in game 3, Jesse Haines retired the first 6 Yanks - 27 in a row!
