1939 Season Replay: Grove Masters New York in Complete Game Win




April 18, 1939

The 1939 season did not get off to quite the start the New York Yankees had hoped, with an opening day loss to the Boston Red Sox at Yankee Stadium I. The final score was 3-2.

Starting Pitcher Lefty Grove was named player of the game for Boston. Grove, the Boston left-hander, went 9 innings, allowing 2 earned runs on 5 hits. He collected 7 strikeouts.

 "Both teams played hard," said Boston manager Joe Cronin
