First Place Red Sox Too Much For Yankees

July 3, 1978 at Fenway Park
Red Sox 9, Yankees 5  (45-34)

The Yankees went up against the first place Red Sox but unfortunately they began with a whimper.  Ed Figueroa gave up the bulk of the damage and he gave up six runs (five earned) on seven hits and four walks in 3 2/3 innings.

Graig Nettles and Gary Thomasson were the hitting stars in the this one.  Nettles went three for five with a double, a homerun and two runs.  Thomasson went three for four with a double, a homerun and two runs.  Bucky Dent pitched in with a two run, pinch hit homerun in the eighth inning.
