Game Recap

The first war-time game was a twilight affair which started at 7:22 p.m. after a blackout test. Cleveland's Lou Boudreau, leading off the game, crushed Mort Cooper's second pitch into the upper left-field stands for a homer. Tommy Henrich followed with a double and Rudy York tagged one into the short right-field porch to give the American League all the runs it needed.
