The Boston Red Sox topped the Philadelphia Athletics by the score of 13-1, with the largest share of the credit going to left fielder Ted Williams. Williams was 2-3 with a double and 2 walks. He scored 2 runs and drove in 3 for the Red Sox. Boston, now 3-2, has gotten their season off to a good start.

"One win at a time, one game at a time. We try not to get too far ahead of ourselves," Metkovich told the Boston Daily News.

Game 2

Boston Red Sox (4-2)10041000X6100


Loss to Red Sox Extends Philadelphia Losing Streak
The Boston Red Sox topped the Philadelphia Athletics, 6-4, in AL action at Fenway Park. The player of the game was Boston pitcher Joe Dobson. The Red Sox, now 4-2, have played some good baseball in the early going.

The Red Sox beat the Athletics in part due to timely hitting. Case in point: the two-out double Dom DiMaggio produced in the bottom of the fourth. Batting against Philadelphia pitcher Dick Fowler, DiMaggio gave his team a 3-1 lead when he hit a 2-run double.

"I had pretty good command out there," said Dobson.
