1959 World Series  Game 1 featured a standout effort from Chicago's Luis Aparicio who contributed at the plate (and around the bases) while pitchers Early Wynn (seven-plus innings) and Gerry Staley who took care of business the mound. Ted Kluszewski, (a late-August acquisition who hit forty or more home runs in a National League season three times) drove in five runs with a pair of two-run homers and a run-scoring single as Chicago embarrassed Los Angeles, 11-0.
