About the Game The "Miracle Braves" were in last place on July 4, then won the National League pennant by 10 12 games.
The Braves' relatively unknown starting trio of pitchers, with a combined career record of 285245, outperformed the Athletics vaunted rotation (929654) in all four games. Adding to their supposed disadvantages, the Braves arguably lacked a notable home-field advantage.
They had abandoned their 43-year-old home field South End Grounds in August 1914, choosing to rent from the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park while awaiting construction of Braves Field (1915). Thus their home games in this Series were also at Fenway.Game 2 featured Boston's 26-game winner, Bill James, hooking up against Philadelphia's Eddie Plank in a classic pitcher's duel. James allowed only three base runners in the first eight innings, picking off two of them in holding Philadelphia scoreless. Plank matched him until the ninth, when Amos Strunk lost Charlie Deal's fly ball in the sun for a double. Deal then stole third, and scored on a two-out single by Les Mann. James walked two batters in the ninth, but got Eddie Murphy to ground into a game-ending double play to give Boston a 20 advantage in the series coming back home to Fenway. The Braves would eventually accomplish the first four-game sweep in World Series history. The Cubs had defeated the Tigers four games to none in 1907, but Game 1 had ended in a tie before the Cubs won the next four in a row.
