Teams: Brooklyn Dodgers vs. New York Giants
Result: 26-8, Giants
MVPs: Phil Weintraub, Ernie Lombardi
When you're standing in the path of giant, it's best to either get out of their way or prepare yourself for some pain. In 1944, the Brooklyn Dodgers showed us exactly what it looks like to have your dreams crushed, as they gave up 26 runs to the vaunted Giants, including 11 RBIs to Phil Weintraub alone. There's really no other way to put it: this game was ugly for the Dodgers. However, it's also important to note that it was Game 1 of a doubleheader. Later on in the day, the Dodgers would rally back, snatching a 5-4 victory, and saving their pride in the process.
