This Day in Giants History: October 13, 1921

Waite Hoyt of the Yankees and the Giants’ Art Nehf come back with two days rest for game eight of the World Series. With two on and two out in the first‚ Giants first baseman George Kelly hits a grounder to short that goes through Roger Peckinpaugh‚ and a run scores. Not another Giant reaches third base the rest of the day. After Aaron Ward walks in the ninth‚ Frank “Home Run” Baker slashes a ball toward right‚ but second baseman Johnny Rawlings spears it and throws him out while on the ground. Ward heads for third and is gunned down by a throw from Kelly to Frank Frisch to end the Series with a 4-3-5 double play. The Giants win‚ 1-0. Hoyt does not allow an earned run in three complete games. The Giants are the first to lose the first two games and come back to win the World Series.
