Why the Pirates won: They won all the close games, so the margin in the routs didn't matter.

Why the Yankees lost: Whitey Ford didn't start Game 1 for the only time in his last nine WS. Casey Stengel tabbed him for Games 3 & 6; he threw two shutouts instead of starting three times.

Memorable moment: Bill Mazeroski's walkoff HR in Game 7, the first time a HR ended a World Series.

Key stat: 3/38 vs. 24/17, the RS/RA splits in the Pirates three losses and four wins.
