1925 World Series - Pittsburgh Pirates vs Washington Senators
Pittsburgh Pirates 4
Washington Senators 3
October 7 - October 15, 1925
Washington faced Pittsburgh in the 1925 World Series. Walter Johnson led Washington to a second straight American League pennant with a 20-7 record, four shy of four-hundred wins.
Johnson won the opener 4-1.
Pittsburgh rebounded with a 3-2 victory.
The Senators took the next two games 4-3 and 4-0. Johnson's shutout gave Washington a 3-1 Series lead.
Pittsburgh evened the Series with 6-3 and 3-2 victories.
Johnson started Game 7 at Forbes Field. A steady downpour created a mud graveyard and fog obscured the infield during the last three innings.
Washington led 6-3 in the seventh, but Pie Traynor hit a three-run triple.
Shortstop Roger Peckinpaugh homered in the top of the eighth for a 7-6 Washington lead.
But in the bottom of the eighth, Peckinpaugh made a poor throw to second attempting a force-out. Two runners reached base. A two-run ground-rule double clinched the 1925 World Series. Washington's Goose Goslin claimed it was a foul.
Pittsburgh became the first team to overcome a 3-1 deficit in a best-of-seven Series. Peckinpaugh was the "Series goat" with a record eight errors.
In the eighth inning of Game 3, Sam Rice made a diving catch into the right-field stands. Pittsburgh claimed a fan stuffed the ball into his glove. A letter at the Hall of Fame opened after Rice's death in 1974 stated: "At no time did I lose possession of the ball."
