The 1957 season was a magical year for the Milwaukee Braves as they defeated the New York Yankees, four games to three, to deliver the city's first World Series Championship. Pitcher Lew Burdette earned World Series MVP honors with three wins, including shutouts in game five and game seven to become the first pitcher since Christy Mathewson in 1907 to toss consecutive shutouts in a World Series. On offense, 1957 N.L. MVP Hank Aaron paced the Braves with a series-best .393 batting average, three home runs, and seven RBI. Hall-of-Famer Eddie Mathews hit a game-winning two-run home run in the bottom of the 10th in game four, scored the lone run in the Braves' 1-0 win in game five, and had the game-winning RBI in the Braves' 5-0 victory in game seven.
