Doerr Homers Twice, Sox Beat A’s

April 21, 1948




Bobby Doerr homered twice and drove in four runs as the Red Sox took down the Athletics 8-0 in the rubber game of the three game series. Mel Parnell shut down the A’s for 8 and 2/3 innings. Earl Johnson came in for the final out. “I wanted to stay in there to get the shutout but I was starting to tire and and Joe saw it and took me out. It is a long season and the most important thing is we had the game in hand” said Parnell.

Doerr now has three homers on the season and has driven in eight runs just three games into the season. The Red Sox get a another day off tomorrow and then will open a three game weekend series Friday in New York against the Yankees.
