Yankees 8, Athletics 3  (1-0)

Babe Ruth didn’t need the long ball as he scored three runs with a walk and a triple as the Yankees took their season opener over the Athletics.  Ty Cobb began his season with a pair of singles and two walks but it wasn’t nearly enough as the Yankees rolled over the Athletics.  Lou Gehrig had a nice game with two singles, a run and two RBIs.

Herb Pennock went the distance and he picked up the win.  He gave up three runs on seven hits and five walks with four strikeouts.

Herb Pennock picked up the win and he held the A’s to three runs on seven hits and two walks.  Next up for the Yankees would be the Red Sox.
