The Sox tied the game in the seventh on Oscar Gamble’s two-run home run. Britt Burns got the win with two perfect innings of relief.
The victory touched off a flurry of Yankee activity.
After the game, Yogi Berra was replaced by Billy Martin as Yankee manager.
New York pitching coach Clyde King delivered the news to Yogi, prompting an irate Berra to vow to never set foot in Yankee Stadium as long as George Steinbrenner owned the team.
Berra and the Yankees reconciled years later.
