1910 New York Highlanders over 1923 Detroit Tigers
Four games to three
MVP: Birdie Cree (.424, 1 HR, 6 RBI, 5 SB)
 
The best series we have seen so far came down to the last inning of game seven where the Highlanders made a memorable comeback to win this series. Down 6-2 going into the bottom of the 9th the Pre Yankees team rallied in a big way against Ole Olsen and the Tigers. With two out the home side got four straight hits and a walk to get the win, the clincher coming from series MVP Birdie Cree who singled in two as the winning run beat a Ty Cobb throw on a close play at the plate.
 
The series started off with great pitching with two initial shutouts but the offenses opened up after that. Cobb himself, older then his prime years, batted .303 in the series but did hit a rare walk off winning home run in game three. The Highlanders were led by Cree and Hal Chase who batted .438 and drove in nine.
 
The Tigers were a strike away from victory and could chase it but they saw it all slip away.

1975 Pittsburgh Pirates over 1941 St. Louis Cardinals
Four games to two
MVP: Richie Hebner (.333, 2 HR, 6 RBI)
 
The 41 Cardinals lost all three of their games at Sportsman’s Park and could not complete a comeback after losing the first three games of the series. The Pirates took control of the series after winning a 15 inning marathon in game 2. Down three games to none Lon Warneke pitched a shutout in game four while the Cards won big 11-1 in game five and seemed to be ready for a monumental turnaround heading back home, it wasn’t meant to be however.
 
Pittsburgh hit five home runs in the clinching win and although they were out hit thoroughly in the series, they got the big hits when they needed them. Willie Stargell and Dave Parker did not have good series at the plate but other players stepped up like Riche Hebner and Rennie Stennett. Bob Robertson was also a key man off the bench getting three hits as a pinch hitter including a two run home run.

1926 Cincinnati Reds over 2010 Philadelphia Phillies
Four games to three
MVP: Pete Donohue (2-0, 3.67 ERA, 8 K)
 
A great series comes down again to the last game and the upstart Reds pull the upset against the favored Phillies. This series really came down to the ability of the Reds to hit Phillie pitching at a .317 clip and more specifically the fails of Roy Halladay who lost twice and had an ERA over six. In game seven especially Halladay didn’t get out of the 2nd inning and allowed seven runs that were just too much.
 
There were great games in the series including two walk off games by each team. In game six with the Phllies having their backs to the wall Roy Oswalt pitched an inspired 2-1 win to keep his team alive, but it wasn’t meant to be. Ryan Howard only batted .161 for the series and the Phils as a unit only had 2 home runs for the series. The likes of Jackie May and Pete Donohue did the job for the Reds who were in truth a bit better managed and a bit more aggressive on the bases.

1945 Washington Senators over 1925 Philadelphia A’s
Four games to two
MVP: Roger Wolff (2-0, 1.80 ERA, 8 K)
 
The Washington Senators behind quality pitching and timely hitting come out winners in this series that was competitive but lacked the superstar player that we usually see in this tournament. The Senators took the first two games on the road at Shibe Park beating the A’s behind Dutch Leonard’s complete game in game one and then a breakout six RBI performance by Joe Kuhel in their game two win.
 
In Washington the Athletics and Connie Mack came right back wining two in a row to tie the series, thanks in huge part to the great play of Al Simmons who batted .519 for the series with 14 hits. In the end however the Senators turned it things around and wrapped things up in Philadelphia where they won all three games. Roger Wolff was a star on the mound for the Senators allowing only three earned runs in his two starts.

1963 Chicago White Sox over 1990 Boston Red Sox
Four games to none
MVP: Cam Carreon (.429, 1 HR, 6 RBI)
 
The battle of the Sox turned into a one sided affair as a rare sweep came into effect with the White Sox beating Roger Clemens twice on the way to four straight wins. The games were close but ultimately it came down to the White Sox pitching which allowed only 10 earned runs in the four games and were paced by ace Ray Herbert who won two games, Herbert outpitched Clemens in the opener in what was a tight 2-1 affair.
 
In the deciding game four Cam Carreon stepped up with a three run shot off of Clemens which was the final blow of the series, Carreon played well and Nellie Fox did a fine job with the glove to hold down the Red Sox. The lack of speed overall hurt the Sox as they got little movement on the bases and little help from the top of the lineup, they hit .298 as a team but did little with the base runners they had; Tony Pena hit leadoff the entire series and batted only .200.

2007 Arizona Diamond Backs over 1911 Chicago Cubs
Four games to three
MVP: Brandon Webb (2-1, 0.69 ERA, 13 K)
 
A great series between the Cubs and the DBacks came down to the final game where Brandon Webb proved the difference over Ed Ruelbach in game seven, Webb was just determined to get the win and threw a two hit shutout for the clincher. The series looked to be in complete control by Arizona was they won the first three games and had two chances to wrap things up at home. The Cubs battled back however and won three in a row looking like a new team, game six was especially a seesaw battle that saw the Cubs come from behind for a 7-5 win.
 
In the end Arizona rode their ace however to victory. Conor Jackson was another star in the series driving in 11 runs while Eric Byrnes stole four bases and batted .346. The Cubs tried to use their small ball to counter and stole 11 bases in the series, to help overcome their feeble .232 team average. The Cubs do deserve credit for not quitting and fighting to the end in this series, but Mr. Webb was just too much striking out 13 in his three games, overcoming an unusual amount of walks with 14.

1967 Minnesota Twins over 1957 Chicago White Sox
Four games to three
MVP: Tony Olivo (.357, 2, 7 RBI)
 
Another tight series between two Midwest American League rivals that came down to the final game where the Twins took game seven at home behind a late rally that included a two run home run by Harmen Killebrew in the late innings. No team in the series won two games in a row but kept coming back and forth; Dean Chance had two of the wins while Billy Pierce lost two of the games including the clincher.
 
In the series the Twins hit .317 as a team with Zoilo Versailles leading the way with a .500 average (12-24). In contrast in styles the Twins battered nine home runs while not stealing a single base, in complete opposite form the White Sox stole nine bases, five by Luis Aparicio, but didn’t have a single long ball.

1985 New York Yankees over 1924 New York Yankees
Four games to none
MVP: Don Baylor (4-9, 3 HR, 8 RBI)
 
The most anticipated series up to this point and it turned out to be a total demolition as the 1985 Yankees showed why no one should have forgotten them. Game two of this series in the Bronx was one for the ages as the 85 Yanks embarrassed the 24 Yanks by pounding them by a laughable 25-6 scorline, the winners accumulated 30 hits in the game and rolled all the way to a sweep in truth embarrassing their opposition. The 85 Yanks batted .400 as a team and scored 39 runs in 4 games. In contrast the 24 Yankees had a team ERA of 11.42 and one man, Waite Hoyt, allowed an incredible 21 runs in 7 innings of work.
 
The series was the introduction of Babe Ruth to the competition and the Bambino was less then dominant only driving in one run without a longball; Ruth did bat .357. For the 85 Yanks Don Baylor had 7 RBI in two games and other stars like Don Mattingly (.450) and Rickey Henderson (.600) were unstoppable. This series through and through was no contest.

2001 Seattle Mariners over 1961 LA Dodgers
Four games to one
MVP: John Olerud (.455, 3 HR, 6 RBI)
 
A team that won 116 games in a season knows something about closing out games and the Mariners in this series won four of five games and stamped out the Dodgers with a 14-5 in California. In the clinching game John Olerud went an incredible 6-6 and drove in four runs while hitting two home runs. The Mariners offense was all over the Dodgers pitching staff throughout the series despite their strong reputation with Don Drysdale and Sandy Koufax. The Mariners in fact batted .357 as a team led by rookie sensation Ichiro Suzuki who batted .542 for the series (13-24).
 
Drysdale did get the only win of the series for the Dodgers in game three but he wasn’t his usual dominant self. The Dodger offense didn’t do their pitching any favors either as they were shutout by Jamie Moyer in the opener and managed only two home runs for the series. Lou Piniella and the Mariners looked the much better and stronger side.

2009 LA Dodgers over 1955 Cleveland Indians
Four games to two
MVP: Andre Ethier (.421, 2 HR, 14 RBI)
 
The Dodgers and Joe Torre, behind mostly a strong pitching advantage, outplayed the Cleveland Indians for a convincing series win. Andre Ethier lead the charge as the outfielder drove in 14 runs in six games including a two run go ahead single in the 8th inning of the deciding game six. Down three games to one the Indians battled back with a big 12-2 win near the lake but couldn’t hold the lead late Dodger Stadium to extend the series. Dodger pitchers led by Randy Wolf, who won two of the games, held the Indians to a .234 average for the series and under three runs for three of the games.
 
The Indians only had 44 hits in the six game series but eleven of them were home runs including four by Larry Doby who was one of the few Cleveland hitters to stay hot throughout. Jonathan Broxton capped three of the wins with saves and was a key factor as many of the wins were close ones. Ethier was the star of the series with his RBI total and Rafael Furcal batted an astonishing .542 for the series at the top of the order.
