1939 Season Replay: Yankees Prevail, 6-4, Over Boston



April 19, 1939

Conditions were not ideal but New York and Boston were able to put their game in the books. The New York Yankees topped the Boston Red Sox, 6-4, in AL action at Yankee Stadium .

The player of the game was New York pitcher and Oakland, California native Monte Pearson. In 9 innings, Pearson surrendered 7 hits, while striking out 2 and walking 3. He allowed 4 runs. The Yankees got a big at-bat from left fielder George Selkirk.

For the game, Selkirk went 1 for 4. In the bottom of the fifth, with runners on 1st and 3rd, he stroked a run-scoring single. His 2nd hit of the season gave New York a 3-2 lead.

 "Monte is tough when he's hitting his spots," said New York manager .

 The Yankees are off to a nightmare start as they look to defend their championship, notching only their 1st win in 3 games.
