This Day In New York Yankees History 10/2

On this day in 1932 the Yankees win their 12th consecutive game in the World Series sweeping their third consecutive World Series. The Yankees beat the Cubs 13-6 as they banged out 19 hits in the clincher.

On this day in 1936 the Yankees routed the New York Giants 18-4 in the most lopsided victory in the history of the World Series. The Yankees would take a two games to one lead in the series.

On this day in 1978 I have three words for you and all Boston Red Sox fans, Bucky F&#*ing Dent. The Yankees would score a 5-4 come from behind victory over the Boston Red Sox in Fenway Park off a unlikely three run home run by Bucky Dent. Goose Gossage would get the save and the playoff spot for the New York Yankees on the final game of the season.

On this day in 1986 Don Mattingly set a new team record when he smashed his 232rd hit of the season establishing the new hits record for a single season. Earl Combs had the previous record when he hit 231 hits in the 1927 season. Mattingly finished with 238 hits for the season.
