April 20th, 1939: Red Sox at Yankees

This is a baseball simulation using Out of the Park Baseball






The New York Yankees opened their 1939 season with a triumph over the Boston Red Sox at Yankee Stadium. The final score was 6-3. New York left fielder Jake Powell had a big game. He went 3 for 4 with 2 home runs. He drove in 5 runs and scored twice.

Red Ruffing got credit for the win, improving to 1-0. He allowed 3 runs on 4 hits in 9 innings. Early in the game, Powell had a 2-run home run for New York. It was his 2nd home run of the season and put the Yankees on top, 2-0.

In postgame comments to the New York Herald, Powell said, "If the effort is there, the wins will come."

Game Notes:

This is the first game in the historical career of Ted Williams. He started in RF and was batting 6th. Williams went 1-4 with a single to centerfield. Lou Gehrig also started for the Yankees at his familiar first base position. His consecutive games streak will be coming to close soon though as 1939 is the last year Gehrig will play baseball. The Red Sox will head home next to play the Philadelphia Athletics. Weather turned a scheduled three game series with the Yanks into a one game series. Jim Bagby will get the ball for the Red Sox and Roy Parmelee will pitch for the Athletics.

Here is a link to the actual box score of this game in which the Red Sox lost 2-0 with Ted Williams also going 1-4 in his MLB debut.
