April 23, 1939: Athletics at Red Sox

This is a baseball simulation using Out of the Park Baseball




The Boston Red Sox downed the Philadelphia Athletics, 8-6, at Fenway Park. The Red Sox were led by Jimmie Foxx, who captured player of the game honors. He went 3 for 5 with a home run and 2 singles. He drove in 2 runs and scored once.

Elden Auker earned the win to go to 1-0. He allowed 6 earned runs on 10 hits, with 3 walks and 2 strikeouts. The Red Sox, now 3-1, have played some good baseball in the early going. Foxx had a big at-bat with a runner on 1st in the bottom of the third inning, when he hit a 2-run home run. The Red Sox went on to win. "Win or lose, we pick each other up in this clubhouse," Foxx told the Boston Citizen.

Replay Notes: 

The Red Sox lost this game in real life 12-8 when they gave up 6 runs to the Athletics in the 8th inning. In our replay of this game the Sox almost blew their big lead but Joe Heving got the last out with the tying run at the plate.

Historically, this was the day Ted Williams hit his first career homer. In our replay, Ted homered again. It is his third homer of the season. The home run in our replay was a unique one though as it was an inside the park homerun. Williams hit it to right center and it got caught up in the triangle in Fenway Park. Williams hit one inside the park homerun in his career but it would not come until 1946. You can see the actual boxscore from the game against the Athletics. Scroll down to see the boxscore from our replay.

 The Red Sox are now 3-1 in our replay. They were 2-2 at this point in the season back in 1939 The Red Sox will host the Washington Senators next. Jimmie DeShong will get the start for the Senators and Jack Wilson will get the start for the Red Sox.
