The runner at first was thrown out trying to steal. 

WINNER!

 

Babe Ruth was thrown out trying to steal with two outs in the 9th inning, Game 7 of the 1926 World Series. The Yankees lost the game, 3-2, and the Series to the Cardinals.

 

It's the only time a World Series has ended with a caught stealing.

Cool. I was going to say that when you gave the Trumbo clue, but it seemed too easy. Who was ab? A crummy hitter with no power?

No, Bob Meusel was batting. For some reason Gehrig was not hitting cleanup. He was waiting on deck. 

 

Meusel hit .315 that year for the Yankees with 12 HR and 78 RBI, and his 138 RBI's the previous year led the league.

 

Ruth never could explain why he decided to steal. It wasn't a close play at all.
