On September 6, 1936 — At Fenway Park, the Yankees drop a pair to the Red Sox, 14 – 5, and 4 – 2. In the opener, Wes Ferrell coasts to a win, allowing 14 hits and occasionally lobbing the ball to the plate. Jimmie Foxx’s 37th homer starts the scoring. Yankees second baseman Tony Lazzeri’s homer in game two deprives Lefty Grove of a shutout.
