1924 World Series Game 4

Tuesday October 7, 1924
Polo Grounds

For the first time in the series, a team jumped to a comfortable lead and kept it. In the process, Washington was able to even the series with the Giants, and make the series a best-of-three.

The Giants actually took the early lead, however, when an error by Ossie Bluege at third allowed yet another unearned run. George Mogridge was able to get out of the first with no further damage, though it would not be the last Washington error of the game.

The Nats’ offense started taking over in the third inning. With two out and two on, Goose Goslin launched his second home run of the series, this time off of Virgil Barnes, to give Washington a 3-1 lead.

The Griffs added two more in the fifth when a Barnes wild pitch scored Earl McNeely from third, and Goslin’s bat struck again, this time with an RBI single to score manager Bucky Harris from second base.

Washington added two more runs in the eighth, helped in part by another Goslin hit. For the game, Goslin went 4-for-4 with two runs and four RBI. The Giants were able to add a few runs to make it somewhat interesting, including another unearned run in the ninth thanks to a Sam Rice mishap; but the game was in hand for Washington, who won by the final score of 7-4.
