Yankees in Game 7
Surprisingly for such a successful franchise, the Yankees have not performed at their usual stellar level in Game 7 contests. Ignoring 1921, when the World Series was a best of nine affair, the Bronx Bombers have gone 6-6 in the climactic games, winning the World Series in 1947, 1952, 1956, 1958, and 1962 and the ALCS in 2003. Their Game 7 losses have all come in the Fall Classic, with the Yanks bowing in 1926, 1955, 1957, 1960, 1964 and 2001. Considering that the Yankees have gone 129-84 in World Series games, for them to be only 5-6 in WS Game 7s is something of a surprise.
