The 1913 Washington Senators won 90 games, lost 64, and finished in second place in the American League. They were managed by Clark Griffith and played home games at National Park.

Regular season

This was a very good season for a team that was considered perennial losers. The nucleus was still ace pitcher Walter Johnson. He won each category of the pitching triple crown by wide margins and was voted league MVP, in perhaps his best season. Clyde Milan, Johnson's best friend, set a modern-day stolen base record, with 75. The offense was led by future Black Sox ringleader Chick Gandil, who hit .318 and drove in a team-leading 72 runs. Eccentric Germany Schaefer hit .320 in limited action.
