New York Yankees 9 DiMaggio 2-3 HR 2 Runs 4 RBI IW
Washington Senators 0 Vernon 0-4 Strikeout
Stirnweiss (NYA) got hits in his first four at-bats and ended up 4-5 with 3 runs scored for the game.
New York Yankees 2 DiMaggio 0-2 2 Walks
Washington Senators 1 Vernon 1-4 Strikeout
Haefner (WAS) goes the full 9 innings, allows only 3 hits, 2 Walks and 1 earned run.
The Yankees score in the top of the 9th Inning when Stirnweiss reaches on an error by Christman at short, then scores on a double by Keller.
The Yankees open the season with a series sweep. The New York bats were solid, but Washington hit only .141 for the series. The Yankees starters were also good. Reynolds, Lopat and Ranchi look to be a tough top three. Mickey Haefner was really good for the Senators in the last game but was the victim of hard-luck in the final inning that resulted in an unearned run and a tough loss.
What This Is
My attempt to to play out the 1948 MLB season with the APBA Baseball basic game.
