1948 Red Sox Season Replay: Sox Fall to Yanks

This is a 1948 Boston Red Sox Season Replay using the baseball simulation engine of Out of the Park Baseball



April 30, 1948

 The New York Yankees racked up a win at Fenway Park, bumping off the Boston Red Sox, 6-2. Spec Shea, who started for New York, pitched effectively for his team. It was the 7th win in 10 games this year for the defending champion Yankees, who are picking up where they left off.

The Yankees got a big at-bat from left fielder Bobby Brown. For the game, Brown was 3-4 with a triple and a double. In the top of the eighth, with a runner on 2nd, he stroked a run-scoring triple. His 1st triple of the season gave New York a 3-2 lead. "I'm just happy to help the team win," Shea told the New York Times.

The Red Sox drop to 6-5 on the season and trail the first place Detroit Tigers by two games. The Red Sox will face the Yankees again tomorrow in Fenway Park. Joe Dobson, who is 2-1 with a 3.24 ERA will take the mound for the Red Sox while the Yankees will counter with Vic Raschi who is 1-2 on the year with a 7.41 ERA.

Rip Sewell of the Pittsburgh Pirates toyed with the Chicago Cubs today, blanking them 2-0 at Wrigley Field. He was almost untouchable, baffling them on a 6-hit shutout with 1 strikeout and 1 walk. "I'm sweating now because it's hot in here," Sewell said in the clubhouse after the game. "But it didn't even feel like I was sweating out there."

The St Louis Cardinals lead the way in the National League and enjoy a half game lead on the Boston Braves
