April 19, 1927 at Yankee Stadium

Red Sox 6, Yankees 3  (6-1)

It had to happen eventually, even to the 1927 Yankees but they finally lost a game to end their six game winning streak.  Lou Gehrig provided most of the offense for the Yanks.  He went two for five with a double and two of the three Yankees’ runs. 

Bob Shawkey was roughed up for five runs in six innings and he took the loss.  He walked two and struck out three.

Yankees 9, Athletics 9  (2-0)

The Yankees winless streak remained intact today when they played the Athletics to a 9-9 ten inning tie.  At the plate, Bob Meusel had three hits and three runs while both Mark Koenig and Babe Ruth had a hit and two runs a piece. 

Bob Shawkey was bounced out of the game after getting just one out in a three run first inning by the A’s.  Wilcy Moore was knocked around as well and he gave up the rest of the runs.
