Red Sox Offense Continues to Sputter in Loss to the A's

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

April 28, 1948

Philadelphia was the site of a exceptional pitchers' duel. The Philadelphia Athletics topped the Boston Red Sox, 2-0, in AL action. The player of the game was Philadelphia pitcher and Medford, New Jersey native Joe Coleman. The win moves Philadelphia to a record of 5-4.

Had Ferris Fain not delivered a key base hit in the bottom of the seventh, the outcome might have been different. Instead, with two down and a runner on 3rd, Fain hit a run-scoring double. That made the score 1-0, in favor of the Athletics. "Good pitching, clutch hitting," said Philadelphia skipper Connie Mack . "I can't complain."

 The Red Sox now fall to 5-4 and trail the Indians and Tigers by one game. The Red Sox and Athletics will square off again tomorrow afternoon in Philadelphia. The Red Sox will send Jack Kramer to the hill who is 1-1 on the season and the Athletics will counter with Dick Fowler who is 0-1 on the young season.

 In the NL, it is still a three way tie for first place between the Cardinals, Dodgers and Pirates
