Red Sox Show Off Power at Fenway, Top Senators, 8-5

May 14, 1963 - With a thunderous smash that came within three feet of clearing the fence in back of the center field bleachers, Bob Tillman hit a three-run homer that led an assault on the Washington Senators before 6,907 at Fenway Park yesterday and gave the Red Sox an 8-5 victory. The Red Sox cut loose with their heaviest barrage of the season, 11 hits for 26 bases. There were additional homers by Frank Malzone (pictured) and Dick Stuart; triples by Carl Yastrzemski and Lu Clinton; and a pair of doubles by Chuck Schilling. As a result, with Gene Conley pitching six and two-thirds innings and Dick Radatz finishing, the Red Sox climbed by the idle Kansas City Athletics into second place, one game behind the Chicago White Sox. The victory gave the Red Sox the series, three victories to one. Jim King homered for the Senators.
