Boston Red Sox (1-1)010100200471

Behind a solid performance from left fielder Tommy McCraw, the Chicago White Sox defeated the Boston Red Sox, 6-4. McCraw was 3-4 with 3 singles, while adding 2 RBI and scoring once for the White Sox.

Tommy John got credit for the win, improving to 1-0. He allowed 4 runs on 5 hits in 7.1 innings. Bob Locker earned save number 1.

 McCraw had a game-changing single in the top of the eighth. On a 1-1 fastball from John Wyatt, he banged a 2-run single to right, giving the White Sox a 6-4 lead. It was the 3rd hit of the year for McCraw. "I just try to see the ball and put a good swing on it," said McCraw.

 The loss drops Boston to 1-1.
