On October 10, 1937 — In the World Series, New York Yankees pitcher Lefty Gomez knocks in the winning run in the 4 – 2 clincher in Game 5 against the New York Giants. It is his record fifth World Series win without a loss. Another record comes when the Yankees complete the Series without an error.

Myril Hoag’s home run leading off the second inning and a Joe DiMaggio blast in the third gave Lefty Gomez a 2–0 lead. Mel Ott’s two-run home run in the bottom of the third tied it. The Yankees got the game-winning (and Series-winning) runs they needed in the fifth on a Tony Lazzeri triple, an RBI single by Gomez and an RBI double by Lou Gehrig.
