Yankees Blow Out Athletics in Home Opener

April 12, 1927 at Yankee Stadium

Yankees 8, Athletics 3  (1-0)

The Yankees took care of the Athletics in grand fashion today in their opener, and it front of a record crowd of 65,000 no less.  Waite Hoyt threw a solid game and he picked up the win.  He gave up three runs on eight hits and three walks with three strikeouts.

Joe Dugan was three for four in the game and he scored once while leadoff man Earle Combs doubled and scored twice.  Babe Ruth had a tough game though.  He struck out twice and popped up to finish an unimpressive 0 for 3.
