In the 1924 World Series, the Washington Senators beat the New York Giants in seven games. Though the Senators would reach the World Series twice more during their time in Washington (1925 and 1933), their next World Series victory would not come until 1987, after more than half a century and a relocation from Washington to Minnesota.
Walter Johnson, making his first World Series appearance toward the end of his storied career with the Senators, lost his two starts. The Nats battled back to force a Game 7, giving Johnson a chance to redeem himself when he came on in relief in that game. Johnson held on to get the win and give Washington its only championship.
The Giants become the only National League team to play in four consecutive World Series.
