1916: Red Sox vs. Dodgers

Game 2

Before becoming the greatest slugger in baseball history for the Yankees, Babe Ruth was an excellent pitcher for the Red Sox. He was at his best in the 1916 World Series, when he pitched all 14 innings of a 2-1 win, allowing just six hits and three walks. Ruth kept Brooklyn scoreless for the last 13 innings, starting a streak of 29 1/3 consecutive scoreless innings in the World Series, a record that stood until 1961.
