Red Sox 4, Yankees 1  (41-30)

The Yankees lost round one of a big series with the first place Red Sox in a game where they were held to just a single run.  Chris Chambliss went two for two with a walk and an RBI while Fred Stanley singled twice in three at bats.

Andy Messersmith was solid but he took the loss and he fell to 0-2.  He gave up three runs (one earned) on six hits and four walks with six strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings.
