Fifty-four years ago today, on October 10, 1957, the Milwaukee Braves won the World Series after shutting out the New York Yankees 5-0 at Yankee Stadium. Lew Burdette got the win, and was later named the Series MVP. During the series, he pitched three complete games and two shutouts. This made him the first pitcher since Christy Mathewson in 1905 to pitch two shutouts in a World Series.
1957 was the ONLY year Milwaukee has gone to the World Series.
