Red Sox Come Back Late, Nip Athletics

April 29, 1967

Kansas City Athletics (6-10)000030000351
Boston Red Sox (6-10)2000010014111

Fans who gathered at Fenway Park saw a good contest between the Boston Red Sox and Kansas City Athletics. The Boston Red Sox topped the Kansas City Athletics, 4-3, in AL action at Fenway Park. The player of the game was Boston pitcher Dave Morehead. Boston reliever Sparky Lyle picked up the win, bumping his record to 2-0. Jack Aker was collared with the loss.

  Tony Conigliaro was the walk-off hero for Boston. With the game tied in the bottom of the ninth inning, the Red Sox right fielder hit a dramatic run-scoring single to send the teams home.

 "We came out on the wrong end of this one," said Kansas City skipper Al Dark. The Athletics fall to 6-10 and continue their lackluster start to the 1967 season.
