The Yankees made it three straight wins in a 10-3 blowout in the Yankees opener against the Athletics.  Gil McDougald went two for five with a double, three RBIs and a run.  Yogi Berra went three for four with a triple, a walk, two RBIs and three runs.

Duke Maas didn’t last long in this one and he was shelled for three runs in two innings.  The pen picked him up through and Zach Monroe and Art Ditmar combined to throw seven innings of shutout relief.  Ditmar picked up the win and he improved to 2-0 on the season.
