The Yankees lost for the third time in four games and lost their first series of the season at the hands of the A’s.  It wasn’t for lack of production from their big bats though.  Both Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig hit homeruns.  The A’s won the game in the bottom of the ninth on a throwing error by Mark Koenig.

Dutch Reuther got the start and he went seven innings but it was Wilcy Moore who took the loss in relief.
