June 10, 1964

06/10/2009

On this day in 1964, the Red Sox rallied in the bottom of the 10th inning to take game one of a doubleheader from the Yankees at Fenway Park. The Yankees tied the game at 5 in the ninth inning, when Phil Linz hit his first home run of the year, a solo shot off of Dick Radatz. Then there was a 43-minute rain delay after the Sox hit in the bottom of the inning. When play resumed, Roger Maris singled and scored in the top of the 10th to give New York a 6-5 lead. But in the bottom of the inning, Tony Conigliaro homered off of Bud Daley, and after a Carl Yastrzemski pop-up, defensive replacement Dick Williams blasted a walk-off homer to win the game 7-6. The Yankees won the second game, 10-6.

In Cleveland, the Angels’ Jim Fregosi went 4-for-6 with six RBI in a 7-4 win over the Indians. The Angels swept the DH.
