1948 Red Sox Season Replay: Trucks Too Much for Sox Offense

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


May 5, 1948

Detroit Tigers starter Virgil Trucks was definitely locked-in. He led his team to a win over the Boston Red Sox, 5-2. Trucks went the distance for Detroit. He gave up 2 earned runs on 8 hits.

The result might have been different for Detroit, had it not been for Johnny Lipon. The shortstop produced a 2-run single in the top of the seventh inning to put the Tigers ahead, 3-1. For the game, Lipon had 1 double and 2 singles in 5 at-bats. "I felt good up there," said Lipon. "I saw the ball well."
Billy Goodman had his 13 game hitting streak end by Trucks and the Tigers. Ted Williams hit his first home run of the season. The Red Sox are now 8-7 and trail the first place Yankees by 2.5 games. The Tigers move to 10-5 on the season and are just a half game out of first place.

In the National League, The Pirates and Braves are tied for first place and hold a one game lead over the Dodgers and Cardinals

The Red Sox and Tigers will be back in action again tomorrow afternoon as Mel Parnell will face Hal Newhouser. Parnell is 1-1 with a 2,67 ERA and Newhouser is 2-1 with a 3.44 ERA

1948 Red Sox Season Replay: Kramer Quiets The Tigers

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




May 4th, 1948

Boston starter Jack Kramer had a strong outing against the Detroit Tigers at Fenway Park. The right-hander was a big part of his team's 3-1 win. The Red Sox got a big at-bat from catcher Birdie Tebbetts. For the game, Tebbetts went 1 for 3 with a double, while adding 2 RBI. In the bottom of the fourth, with runners on 2nd and 3rd, he stroked a 2-run double. His 4th double of the season gave Boston a 2-0 lead. "We can always improve and get better, but we're feeling confident after that win," said Kramer.

Billy Goodman extended his hit streak to 13 games.  The Red Sox move to 8-6 on the season and trail the first place Yankees by a game and a half. The loss by the Tigers knocks them out of first place as they now are a half game behind the Yankees.

The Red Sox and Tigers will play again tomorrow in Fenway Park as Virgil Trucks will face Joe Dobson. Trucks is 1-1 with a 5.64 ERA for the Tigers while Dobson is 3-1 with a 3.18 ERA

The Pittsburgh Pirates lead the National League by one game over the Cardinals and Boston Braves.
