On July 2, 1975 Jim Rice, installed today as the Red Sox regular LF, belts two homers in the first game, including one that is the longest ever hit at County Stadium. In game 2, Fred Lynn is kept off the bases, ending his streak of 38 straight games. Boston’s Rick Wise wins the opener, 6 – 3, not giving up a hit until two are out in the 9th. George Scott then clouts a 2-run homer, and Bobby Darwin follows with another dinger for the Brewers.
