Biggest Blowouts in World Series History (Game)

Bill Dickey And Tony Lazzeri Had Home Runs In The 1936 Game 2 Blowout

It seems more often than not, World Series games (if not the Series themselves) are close.

Out of all those meetings (631 of them through 2013), only 17 (2.69 percent) were blowouts of 10 runs or more. In the last 30 years, we have seen only seven such games.

There hasn’t been a beating of this kind of magnitude in a good six seasons. The Boston Red Sox were the last team to hand one out, whupping the Colorado Rockies 13-1 to open the 2007 Fall Classic sweep.

The biggest blowout ever was a 14-run annihilation of the New York Giants by the eventual champion New York Yankees in 1936.

It’s doubtful we’ll see anything of this sort in 2014 with the pitching-focused talent of both the San Francisco Giants and Kansas City Royals.

Check out what happened in 1960 – it has to be one of the greatest World Series of all time. The Yankees beat the Pittsburgh Pirates by 13 in Game 2, by 10 in Game 3 and by 12 in Game 6. But the Pirates won the Series in Game 7, thanks to Bill Mazeroski‘s walk-off home run.

UPDATED LIST: Through 2014 Game 6, where the Kansas City Royals defeated the San Francisco Giants 10-0 to force a Game 7.
