Today In Tribe History: October 1, 1954

For the first time since 1948, the World Series returns to the shores of Lake Erie as the Cleveland Indians host the New York Giants, already down two games to none. The new location does not make a difference for the Tribe, as the Giants score early and often in a 6-2 win. Mike Garcia is dealt the loss after allowing four runs, three of which were earned, on five hits in three innings. Cleveland manages just four hits off of the Giants pitching tandem of Ruben Gomez and Hoyt Wilhelm.

Vic Wertz hits a solo home run to get the Indians on the board in the seventh. Al Smith knocks in a run on an error at short in the eighth.
