Ralph Terry

Why the Yankees won: Rain delays that affects Games 5-7 allowed them to start their best starters, Whitey Ford and Ralph Terry, six times combined.

Why the Giants lost: Willie Mays, Orlando Cepeda and Felipe Alou had combined for 109 homers during the season but hit none in the WS.

Memorable moment: In the bottom of the ninth of Game 7, Terry completed his shutout when he got Willie McCovey to line out with two runners on.

Key stat: 20. The title gave the Yankees their 20th WS win in 40 years.
