Boston Red Sox 7, Washington Senators 2

April 12, 1965 In the season opener at DC Stadium the Boston Red Sox hit 5 homeruns to beat the Senators 7-2. The succes will be short lived, as they will lose 100 games. The Red Sox drew only 652,201 fans to Fenway Park in 65, seventh in the ten-team league but the Red Sox’ lowest turnstile count since 1945, the last year of World War II.

Tony Conigliaro goes 3-4 in the opener, and will lead the league with 32 homeruns.
