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 reached on an error by Christman at short then scored 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 Raschi 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.

Washington Senators 2 Masterson Vernon 0-3 Sac
Philadelphia Athletics 2 Coleman McCosky 0-3 Walk
The Senators had Walt Masterson on the mound in the final game of the series in an effort to help Washington pick up its first win of the season. Washington fell behind 2-0 after four innings thanks to a solo home run from Sam Chapman - Chapman’s third straight game with a home run. Washington clawed back into a 2-2 tie in the top of the Sixth Inning behind and RBI single from Junior Wooten. Both teams threatened in the Ninth Inning but each left the go-ahead run stranded at third base.
