Why the Yankees won: Led by Jake Powell (.455, 1.175 OPS), the Yankees battered the Giants, outscoring them 43-23 and hitting .302 as a team.

Why the Giants lost: Other than Carl Hubbell (1-1, 2.25 ERA), no other Giants pitcher could slow down the Yankees' attack. Their staff ERA was 6.79.

Memorable moment: Prized rookie Joe DiMaggio made a running catch in center field to end Game 2 ... and he kept on running up the clubhouse steps at the Polo Grounds.

Key stat: 17. The number of consecutive decisions won by Hubbell before the Yankees beat him in Game 3.
