Boston’s Maury McDermott faces 27 batters and fires a one-hitter to beat the visiting Senators‚ 1 – 0. Mel Hoderlein’s 4th-inning single is the only hit, and he is erased on the basepaths. Maury walks one batter who is also doubled up. The Senators leave no runners on base today and combined with the two they left on base on the 27th set a new major league low for fewest in two consecutive games. It will be matched in both leagues.

Joe DiMaggio makes a rare mental error against Detroit, catching a Steve Souchock fly ball in deep CF and, thinking it’s the third out, begins trotting in. It’s only the second out, and George Kell scores from second base to make the score 4 – 2 in the 8th. Despite the lapse, the Yanks win, 5 – 4, with DiMag redeeming himself by knocking in the winning run in the 9th.
