Boston starter Denny Galehouse had a strong outing against the Philadelphia Athletics at Fenway Park II. The right-hander was a big part of his team's 3-1 win.
Charlie Wagner picked up the win in relief, improving his record to 1-0. Cotton Pippen was tagged with the loss. The win pushes Boston to a record of 2-2. Boston won the game in the bottom of the tenth inning. With one out and Cotton Pippen on the mound for Philadelphia, right fielder Ted Williams hit a dramatic 2-run home run, bringing Red Sox fans to their feet.
"It was a good effort all around," said Williams.
