The Giants won their final game of the series in their first game at the Polo Grounds behind Whitey Lockman's home run, but then it was all the Yankees as they swept the Giants behind the pitching of Reynolds, Ed Lopat, and Raschi.
On the final day of the season the two teams were tied and in the third and deciding game of the National League playoffs Bobby Thomson hit the most famous home run in baseball history (Thomson sent his team to the World Series; Carlton Fisk only staved off defeat for one more game).
