Encyclopedia > 1958 World Series

In a rematch of the 1957 Series, the 1958 World Series matched the defending champion Milwaukee Braves against the New York Yankees. The Yankees won the Series in seven (7) games for their 18th title, and their seventh in ten (10) years. With that victory, the Yankees became only the 2nd team in Major League Baseball to come back from a 3-1 deficit to win a best-of-seven World Series; the first was the 1925 Pittsburgh Pirates. (The 1903 Boston Red Sox came back from a 3-1 deficit in a best-of-nine affair.) The 1957 World Series featured the defending champion New York Yankees against the Milwaukee Braves, who had won their first pennant since moving from Boston in 1953. ...

This was the first year New Yorkers had only one local team to root for; both the Giants and the Dodgers were now playing their home games more than 3000 miles away in San Francisco and Los Angeles respectively. Both returnees to the Series had no problems repeating as league champions during the regular season. Milwaukee coasted to an eight game lead over the Pittsburgh Pirates in the National League and the Yanks bested the Chicago White Sox by 10 games in the American. With no pennant race in either league, managers Casey Stengel of the Yankees and Fred Haney of the Braves could rest their aces in preparation for an exciting repeat of the 1957 World Series.

Bill "Moose" Skowron started the scoring with a solo homerun in the top of the fourth inning but the Braves came storming back with two of their own in the bottom of the frame. Hank Aaron walked and quickly took second on a Yogi Berra passed ball. Joe Adcock grounded out to third for the first out. Aaron held second but advanced to third on Wes Covington's groundout to second for the second out. Then three straight singles; Del Crandall to left scoring Aaron, Andy Pafko to center, and Warren Spahn to left-center scoring Crandall, put the Braves up by one.

In the top of the fifth, Spahn retired Tony Kubek on a flyout to left but walked the opposing pitcher, Ford. Lead-off hitter, Hank Bauer then deposited a Spahn fastball into the left-field bleachers to give the Yankees a slim 3-2 lead. Milwaukee would tie the game in the eighth on an Eddie Mathews walk, an Aaron double, and a tying sac-fly by Wes Convington on a deep flyout to Mickey Mantle in left-center.

With no runs tallied in the 9th, extra-innings were played with the Yankees going down 1-2-3 with Spahnie still on the hill for the Braves. Interestingly enough, Ryne Duren, who came into the game to pitch the 8th inning, took his turn at-bat in the 10th and politely grounded back to the pitcher, Spahn. The Braves were not going to let opportunity get away and proceeded to peck away at Duren's deliveries. Aaron started the inning by striking out and was barely thrown out at first base by Yogi Berra on a dropped third strike. Adcock followed with a clean single to center but Covington made the second out on a flyout to left. Crandall then singled up the middle sending Adcock to second base. Bill Bruton, who came into the game pitch-hitting for Pafko in the 9th, lined a single into right-center scoring Adcock with the game-winning run.

Looking to go up two games in the Series, manager Fred Haney wisely sent Lew Burdette (20-10, 2.91), who won three games in the 1957 World Series, to the mound for the Braves while the Yankees went with righty Bob Turley (21-7, 2.91), who won twenty games for the first, and only, time in his career during the regular season.

Burdette started shaky giving up a lead-off single to Hank Bauer. Eddie Mathews fielded a grounder by Gil McDougald but threw wide to first setting up runners on second and third. Mickey Mantle was then intentionally walked loading the bases for cleanup hitter Elston Howard. But Howard would groundout forcing Mantle at second while Bauer came in from third scoring the game's first run. Burdette calmed down enough to get the next batter, Yogi Berra, to ground into an inning ending 4-6-3 double-play; Red Schoendienst, to Johnny Logan, to Frank Torre.

A shakier Bob Turley would last only a third of an inning as the Braves lighted up the scoreboard with seven (7) first inning runs sparked by a lead-off Bill Bruton homerun who hit just three (3) in the season. The inning continured with Schoendienst doubling to right while Eddie Mathews watched a third strike go by for the first out. Hank Aaron walked and dependable Wes Covington singled home a run to right-center. Mid-season pickup Duke Maas relieved Turley to get Frank Torre to fly to right for the second out. Catcher Del Crandall walked loading the bases with Johnny Logan keeping up the on-slaught with a two-run scoring single. With the score already 4-1, pitcher Burdette helped his own cause with a three-run homer that left-fielder Elston Howard thought he had a bead on only to crash into the fence. Norm Siebern was summoned to take over for Howard and Johnny Kucks came in to pitch to try to stop the bleeding. The tenth batter of the inning, Bruton, lined to short but the damage was done as the Braves were staked to a 7-1 lead.

The Braves added to their lead in the 2nd inning on another Covington single this time scoring Eddie Mathews. Things would quiet down a little; Mickey Mantle's solo shot, over the center-field fence, in the 4th was the only other scoring until the 7th when the Braves would score twice more and then thrice more in the 8th. The Yankees would find some life in the top of the 9th scoring three runs off a tiring Burdette. Hank Bauer led off with a homerun followed by a Gil McDougald single to left and then Mantle's second homer of the game, into the left-center field bleachers made it 13-5. Burdette showed some tenacity by retiring Berra, Bill Skowron, and Bobby Richardson, in order, for the win and a 2-0 series lead.

Arriving at the Bronx for games three through five, the Yankees found themselves at home in hopes of their first Series win. Milwaukee should have saved some runs from game two as they were shutdown on a finely pitched game by Don Larsen with a little help from reliever Ryne Duren.

The Yankees needed this win to stay within striking distance of the semmingly run-away Braves. Hank Bauer drove in all the Yankee's runs going 3 for 4 with 4 runs batted in and scoring once. Bauer singled in Norm Siebern and Gil McDougald in the 5th, to extend his Series hitting streak to seventeen games, and then in the 7th hit a 400-foot, two-run homer, into the left-field stands. Larsen went 7 innings on a 6-hitter, striking out 8 with 3 walks. Duren closed the game for his first save pitching two scoreless innings with 3 walks and a strikeout.

Warren Spahn was at his much-needed best, winning game four, 3-0, on a two-hit shutout over Yankee ace Whitey Ford. Yankee left-fielder, Norm Siebern (playing for the injured Elston Howard), had trouble fielding with the afternoon sun blazing, losing fly balls in the 6th and 8th innings accounting for two Milwaukee runs.

It was a much-heralded pitching duel until the top of the 6th when Red Schoendienst led off tripling into deep left-center the ball slicing between "The Mick" in center and Siebern in left. Tony Kubek, who had 28 errors during the season, let a Johnny Logan grounder slip through his legs for an error letting in the game's first run. In the 7th, Spahn blooped a single scoring Andy Pafko who had just doubled to right. In the 8th, Johnny Logan was credited with a ground-rule double when Siebern lost a flyball in the sun. Eddie Mathews followed with another double scoring Logan with the game's final run.

The game did not start out very promising for the Yankees as the first six batters were retired without much fanfare. The Braves didn't fare much better as a walk and a single by Schoendienst in the third was all they could muster. Second baseman Gil McDougald would open up the scoring in the bottom of the third with a homerun into the screen next to the left-field foul pole. Turley kept cruising retiring the side in order in the 4th and 5th until his Yankee teammates opened the floodgates with a six-run 6th. Burdette could only get one out in the inning giving up 5 earned runs before being relieved by Juan Pizzaro. Gilbert James McDougald (born May 19, 1928) was a Major League Baseball player. ...


Hank Bauer would lead off with a single to left. After Jerry Lumpe struck out bunting a third strike foul, Mickey Mantle singled to left-center advancing Bauer to third. Yogi Berra doubled into the right-field corner scoring Bauer, Mantle stopping at third. Howard was intentionally passed loading the bases but Moose Skowron kept the rally going with a short single to right scoring just Mantle. Pizzaro relieved Burdette, who was responsible for all baserunners, and was greeted with a two-run scoring double into the Milwaukee bullpen by Gil McDougald. With runners on second and third, Tony Kubek struck out but had to be thrown out by Del Crandall at first. Turley stay in the game to hit and delivered a single to left scoring runs #6, Skowron, and #7, McDougald. Hank Bauer was the 3rd strikeout victim in the inning but six runs had crossed the plate.

Milwaukee, back at home, has two chances, two games - one win, to sew up their second consectutive championship. Game 6 was an exciting affair that started strong, fizzled into a defensive battle, and ended in a disappointing, anticlimax for Haney's Braves. Two of baseball's all-time greats and game one and game four starters, Whitey Ford, and Warren Spahn, were rarin' to go!

Top of the first, two quick outs by Spahnie, and then the man who would be the Series top hitter, Hank Bauer, stepped to the plate. Hank who would hit .323,with 4 HRs and 8 RBIs, would hit his fourth homer into the left-field bleachers to give the Yanks an early 1-0 lead. The Braves would answer with a run of their own in the bottom of the inning on a Red Schoendienst single, a sacrifice bunt by Johnny Logan, and a run-scoring single to left by Hank Aaron. Spahn settled in and retired the Yankees without a hit in the 2nd. Henry Albert Hank Bauer (born July 31, 1922 in East St. ...

Pitching on only two-days rest, Ford quickly withered in the bottom of the 2nd. After striking out Del Crandall, Wes Covington singled to center on a trap by centerfielder Mickey Mantle. Andy Pafko singled to right advancing Covington to third. Spahn singled to right-center scoring Covington for a 2-1 lead. An exhausted Ford walked Schoendienst loading the bases and Casey Stengel had seen enough motioning to the bullpen for reliever Art Ditmar. Ditmar faced one batter, Logan, who flied out to Elston Howard who in turn threw home with a perfect throw to Yogi Berra, doubling up Pafko trying to score on the sac-fly.

Milwaukee held on to the lead until the top of the 6th inning when the Yankees tied the score on a defensive replacement miscue. Bill Bruton had entered the game to play center for Pafko. After Mantle singled just over the reach of shortstop Johnny Logan's glove; Elston Howard followed with single to center but Bruton fumbled the ball allowing Mantle to reach third on the error. The great bad-ball hitting Berra hit a sacrifice fly to center, Mantle scoring after the catch, to tie the game at 2 apiece.

Warren Spahn was still on the mound for the Braves going into the 10th despite throwing 290 regular season innings and another 19 in the post-season. Gil McDougald, who was having a fine series himself, led off the 10th hitting a probably less-than-average Spahn fastball, over the left-field fence. Bauer almost went back-to-back but Bruton made the catch in deep center. Mantle grounded to second for the 2nd out but Howard and Berra followed with singles setting up runners on first and third. Haney called on Don McMahon to replace Spahn but may have waited a bit too long to change pitchers. Moose Skowron struck a single to right scoring Howard and a 2-run lead. Pitcher Ryne Duren stayed in the game to hit but struck out to end the inning.

The Braves made some noise in the bottom of the 10th but it wasn't enough to overcome the Yankee lead. With Logan on first after a walk and with two outs went to second on the defensive team's indifference (not a stolen base). The ever-dependable Aaron singled to left and the Braves were within one run of tying the game. Joe Adcock then singled sending Aaron to third. Bob Turley came in to relieve Duren and Felix Mantilla pinch-ran for Adcock. Two outs, two on, Frank Torre pinch-hitting for Del Crandall, lined-out to McDougald at the very edge of the outfield grass to end the game and Milwaukee's chance to win the game and the Series.

Trying to beat fantastic odds and come back from a 3-1 deficit, Yankee manager Casey Stengel again chose Don Larsen to start game 7. Larsen had only lasted 2 1/3 innings starting game 7 in the 1957 World Series and once again lasted 2 1/3 innings in 1958. Lew Burdette, who pitched a complete game win in game two but gave up 6 runs in a game five loss, would start for Milwaukee.

The Yankees failed to score in the 1st while the Braves tallied a single run on some lack of control by Larsen. Red Schoendienst led off with a single to left, Bill Bruton walked and Frank Torre sacrificed up both runners, Jerry Lumpe to Gil McDougald, who was covering first base. Hank Aaron walked loading the bases; things looking pretty good for the Braves thus far. Wes Covington grounded out to first but Schoendienst scored on the play.

The Yankees had a wake-up call and came out "swinging" in the 2nd inning. Clean-up hitter Yogi Berra led off with a walk. Slow-footed but hustling Elston Howard layed down a sacrifice and, incredibly, was called safe on a poorly tossed throw by Torre to pitcher Burdette. Jerry Lumpe grounded again to Torre, who again threw too high to Burdette for another error, loading the bases. The left-handed hitting Torre got the start in place of veteran right-hander Joe Adcock who may have been more sure-handed in the field. The next batter, Bill Skowron, forced Lumpe at second, scoring Berra and moving Howard to third. Tony Kubek lifed a sacrifice fly to left, scoring Howard giving the Yankees a 2-1 lead which would hold up until the bottom of the 6th.

Two singles in the bottom of the third brought Stengel out to replace Larsen with a short-rested Bob Turley. The stocky right-hander would escape a bases-loaded situation and pitch superb ball the rest of the way. As it was in game 6, the score was tied 2-2 after six innings of play when, with two outs, Del Crandall homered into the left-field stands giving the Braves fans a reason to cheer and promise of another championship. Robert Lee Turley (born September 19, 1930) (known as Bullet Bob) was a Major League Baseball pitcher. ...


But that hope would fade as the Yankees came to bat in the top of the 8th inning. With tiring Lew Burdette looking for another complete-game victory, the "Bronx Bombers" started an improbable two-out rally. After a Gil McDougald flyout and Mickey Mantle looking at a third called strike, Yogi Berra stepped to the plate and doubled off the wall in the right-field corner. Howard followed with a run-scoring single to center. Andy Carey singled past the glove of Eddie Mathews. William Joseph (Moose) Skowron would then deliver the crushing blow with a three-run homer into the left-field bleachers and cap an incredible, storybook comback. The Milwaukee Braves would not, could not recover, giving the New York Yankees their 18th World Championship. Gilbert James McDougald (born May 19, 1928) was a Major League Baseball player. ...

Trivia

  • After Game 2, Lew Burdette had a four consecutive game win streak versus the Bronx Bombers, one that many fans said was due to a spitball pitch. Burdette addressed the issue, "I'd love to use it, if I knew how. Burleigh Grimes told me not to monkey around with it, but to let them think I threw it and that's what I've done."
  • Hank Bauer (who was a nine-Series veteran) led with most runs scored (six), most hits (ten), most home runs (four) and most runs batted in (eight). He also topped the Yankees sluggers with a .323 average. Despite less-than-stellar stats in his first four Classics (seven for fifty-seven with a .123 avg.), he combined for eighteen hits, six home runs, fourteen RBIs and a .290 average against the Braves in '57 and '58.
  • On October 2, 1958, starting pitcher Lew Burdette went deep with two (2) men on base becoming just the sixth pitcher (to date) with a World Series home run.
