The Giants paid the Braves $100,000 for McQuillan. As a third starter, he helped
New York capture three consecutive NL pennants (1922-24). The deal, made on July
30, 1922, a few days after a controversial Yankee-Red Sox trade, led to the adoption
of a June 15 trading deadline which stood for decades.
»October 6, 1922: The Giants Jack Scott (8–2 with the Giants) fires a 4-hitter as a surprise starter in game three, after Hugh McQuillan (6–5 with NY) warms up to face Waite Hoyt (19-12). Scott gets the Yanks to hit 18 grounders. Frank Frisch’s two RBIs are more than enough in the 3–0 win. With two hits in each game so far, Frisch will bat .471. Heinie Groh, hitting safely in every game, will be at .474.
»October 6, 1924: Washington's surprise starter Firpo Marberry (11-12) and the Giants starter Hugh McQuillan (14-8) will be gone by the 4th. The Giants lead 3–0 after three and are never caught, for a 6–4 victory. The only home run is hit by Giants reliever Rosy Ryan; it is the only home run he hits in six years at New York.
