Yankees 6, Red Sox 5  (1-1)

It took ten innings but the Yankees won their first game of the season against the Red Sox.  Tony Lazerri and Myril Hoag led the way on offense for the Yankees.  Lazerri had two hits and he scored three times while Hoag had two hits, a run and an RBI.

Monte Pearson threw a solid game and he lasted 7 2/3 innings before handing the ball to Murphy out of the pen.  Johnny Murphy put a scare into Yankees’ fans by getting into trouble in the bottom of the ninth but he buckled down and picked up the win.
