1948 Red Sox Season Replay: Batts' Bat Beats the Browns

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




May 7th, 1948

The Boston Red Sox racked up a win at Fenway Park, bumping off the St. Louis Browns, 2-1. Ellis Kinder, who started for Boston, pitched effectively for his team. The Browns drop to 8-8 and continue their inconsistent start to the 1948 season. The clutch at-bat came in the bottom of the ninth inning, when Boston pinch hitter Matt Batts, facing Sam Zoldak, hit a solo home run. It gave the Red Sox the 2-1 win. "This place went bonkers at the end," Batts said.

The Red Sox move to 9-8 on the season and trail the first place Detroit Tigers by three games. The Tigers have now won three in a row. The Red Sox will finish their brief two game series with the Browns tomorrow as Jack Kramer takes the hill. Kramer has turned into the Red Sox ace this season. He is 3-1 with a 1.85 ERA. The Browns will throw Nels Potter who is 1-1 with a 4.38 ERA.

In the National League, the Pirates have a one game lead over the Cardinals and Braves
