Center fielder Wally Berger rocketed 2 homeruns and had 5 RBI at Polo Grounds '24 as the Boston Red Sox beat the New York ALT Giants by the count of 13 to 8.

Berger was a one-man wrecking crew. He tripled plating two runs in the 2nd inning, delivered a solo blast in the 4th inning and smashed a two-run homer (his 28th of the season) in the 6th inning. Despite scoring in 5 separate innings, New York could not get the win.

George Earnshaw(12-10) went 8 and 2/3 innings allowing 8 runs for the victory. Earnshaw was helped out by Jack Salveson who recorded his 5th save. Hal Schumacher(10-14) suffered the loss.

'They made a couple of mistakes and I took full advantage,' Berger said 'next time I'm sure they'll pitch me tougher.'
