 < 1929 World Series 1931 > 

In the 1930 World Series, the Philadelphia Athletics defeated the St. Louis Cardinals in six games, 4–2. Philadelphia's pitching ace Lefty Grove won two and saved one as the "Mackmen" played the Cards right.

The St. Louis Cardinals led the National League in runs scored and averaged six (6) runs per game in the regular season, but could only manage two (2) runs per game during this World Series.

The 1930 Series victory was the Athletics' fifth (including 1910, 1911, 1913, and 1929) and final in Philadelphia until moving to Oakland, where the A's have won four titles. Their 1930 win tied them with the Boston Red Sox for most Series wins as of that point (five). By 1937, both teams would be surpassed by the New York Yankees, who have gone on to amass 27 Series wins as of 2009.
