The New York Yankees are one of the most successful franchises in baseball history, winning 27 World Series championships. But they haven’t always been on top – they’ve also lost the World Series 14 times. In this article, we’ll take a look at how many times the Yankees have lost the World Series and which teams have been their biggest rivals.
The Yankees in the World Series
The Yankees have lost the World Series a total of 27 times. Most recently, they lost to the Houston Astros in 2017. The Yankees have also won the World Series a total of 27 times. Their last win was in 2009.
The Yankees in the World Series: 1903
The New York Yankees have been one of baseball’s most dominant franchises, appearing in 40 World Series and winning 27 times. But they haven’t always been successful in the Fall Classic. In fact, they’ve lost the World Series 11 times. Here’s a look at each of those series losses.
The Yankees in the World Series: 1909
The New York Yankees have appeared in 40 World Series, winning 27 – more than any other team. The Yankees have also lost the World Series on 13 occasions – also more than any other team. They have played in ten World Series against the Philadelphia/Kansas City/Oakland Athletics, winning seven times. The Yankees have also played more World Series games (220) and innings (1,976) than any other team in baseball history.
The Yankees in the World Series: 1918
In 1918, the Yankees won their first World Series championship. They defeated the Boston Red Sox in a close series, 4-2. Babe Ruth pitched well in game one, but the Yankees lost 3-2. He came back to win game four and then again in game seven. The 1918 World Series was significant because it was the first time that the two teams had met in the Fall Classic.
The Yankees in the World Series: 1921
The Yankees have played in 40 World Series and have won 27 of them, the most of any team. They have appeared in almost half of the 82 World Series played since 1903, and their 39 percent winning percentage is also the best.
The Yankees have appeared in more World Series than any other team, and their 27 victories are nearly double that of the St. Louis Cardinals, who are second with 13. The Yankees’ 40 appearances are nearly twice as many as any other team; the Cardinals have also made 22 World Series appearances.
The Yankees have a long history of success in the World Series, winning 27 championships in 40 appearances. Their .675 winning percentage is the best of any team with more than two appearances. The Yankees credit their success to a combination of great players and managers, as well as good fortune.
Some of the greatest players in baseball history have donned the Yankee pinstripes, including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford, and Derek Jeter. These Hall of Famers helped the Yankees to win 20 World Series titles between 1923 and 2009.
The Yankees have also been blessed with great managers over the years. Joe McCarthy led the team to seven World Series titles in 16 years, while Casey Stengel won five championships in 12 seasons at the helm. Billy Martin guided the Bronx Bombers to two titles in his five years as manager, while current skipper Joe Girardi has won one championship in his 10 years with the team.
In addition to having great players and managers, the Yankees have also been lucky on several occasions. In 1947, trauma surgeon Dr. Robert Wessler saved Yogi Berra’s life after he was hit in the head by a pitch during Game One of the World Series. In 1978, Bucky Dent hit a famous home run off Mike Torrez to help beat the Red Sox in a one-game playoff for the AL East title; Dent would go on to be named MVP of that year’s World Series after leadingthe Yankees to victory over Los Angeles Dodgers. And in 1996, newly acquired shortstop Derek Jeter made “The Catch” against Oakland A’s outfielder Jeremy Giambi-a play that many say saved that year’s World Series for New York.
The Yankees in the World Series: 1922
The Yankees have a long and storied history in the World Series, winning a total of 27 championships. They’ve also lost the Fall Classic a total of 13 times, with their most recent loss coming in 2009.
One of their most infamous losses came in 1922, when they blew a 2-0 lead against the Giants. The Yankees would go on to lose the series in seven games.
The Yankees in the World Series: 1923
The Yankees lost the 1923 World Series to the New York Giants in six games. The Giants won Game 1 by a score of 3-0, with Yankee pitcher Waite Hoyt giving up all three runs in the third inning. The Yankees won Game 2, 9-6, behind Babe Ruth’s three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning. The Giants won Game 3, 4-2, behind another complete game by Carl Hubbell. The Yankees won Game 4, 7-3, behind a complete game by Herb Pennock. In Game 5, the Giants scored two runs in the top of the ninth inning to win 3-2 and take a 3-2 lead in the Series. The Yankees won Game 6, 6-4, behind another complete game by Pennock. In the bottom of the ninth inning, Ruth hit a two-run homer off Hubbell to give the Yankees their first lead of the Series; it would prove to be the winning margin.
The Yankees in the World Series: 1926
The Yankees have a long and storied history in the World Series, winning 27 times and losing 13. They’ve played in 40 World Series overall, which is the most of any team.
Of those 13 losses, perhaps none was more heartbreaking than their loss to the Cardinals in 1926. The Cardinals were down to their last out when third baseman Cliff Heathcote hit a game-tying home run off of Yankee pitcher Wilcy Moore. The Yankees then went on to lose the game in the bottom of the 10th inning when Earl Combs dropped a fly ball, allowing Cardinal baserunner Chick Hafey to score from first base.
The Yankees in the World Series: 1927
The Yankees have appeared in 40 World Series, winning 27 of them. They have been the losing team in 13 World Series. Of those, they have been the runner-up team ten times. The Yankees have appeared in more World Series than any other team in baseball history, and they have won more World Series than any other team as well.
The Yankees’ first appearance in the World Series was in 1921, when they lost to the New York Giants. They would not make it back to the Fall Classic for six years, finally doing so in 1927. That year, they defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates in four games. It was the first of four consecutive titles for the Yankees, who would go on to win three more championships in a row from 1936-1938.
After a bit of a drought in terms of recent appearances, the Yankees made it back to the Fall Classic in 1996, where they lost to the Atlanta Braves. They returned to form shortly thereafter, winning three more titles in 1998, 1999, and 2000. In total, those six championships in an eight-year span marks the most successful stretch in franchise history.
More recently, the Yankees made appearances in 2009 and 2010 but lost both times – first to the Philadelphia Phillies and then to the Texas Rangers, respectively. They haven’t been back since but will look to end that drought this season as they currently sit atop the AL East standings.
