October 5, 1936 World Series Game 5 The New York Giants struck first with back-to-back leadoff doubles by Jo-Jo Moore and Dick Bartell off Red Ruffing. RBI singles by Jimmy Ripple and Burgess Whitehead made it 3–0 Giants. George Selkirk’s home run off Hal Schumacher in the second put the Yankees on the board. Next inning, with runners on second and third, an error on Frank Corsetti’s groundball allowed another run to score. A similar situation in the sixth on Burgess Whitehead’s groundball allowed the Giants to pad their lead to 4–2, but in the bottom half, three consecutive two-out singles allowed the Yankees to tied the game. Bill Terry’s sacrifice fly in the top of the tenth inning off Pat Malone, scoring Jo-Jo Moore, who doubled to leadoff and moved to third on a sacrifice bunt, helped the Giants win Game 5 5–4.
