Joe DiMaggio drove in three runs and homered to lead the way for the Yankees in the first game of their doubleheader with the A’s.  It ws DiMaggio’s first game of the season after missing the first four because of his injured heel.  George McQuinn was solid at the plate and he had three hits and a run while Bobby Brown scored twice.

Spud Chandler threw a good game and he held the A’s in check for most of the game.  He was touched for only two runs on eight hits and two walks with a strikeout in the win.

The Yankees picked up the sweep in a ten inning thriller.  Phil Rizzuto had one hit and two runs to lead the way for the Yankees while Tommy Henrich drove in two runs and doubled.  Joe DiMaggio sat this one out as they didn’t want to aggravate his injured heel.

Don Johnson was very sharp in ten innings of work and he picked up the win.  He held the A’s to two runs on eleven hits and a walk with three strikeouts.
