Yanks Top Red Sox, 5-3, as Ford Pitches Gem

July 24, 1962 - Whitey Ford, seeking to rehabilitate a club that had just dropped a doubleheader to the lowly Washington Senators, pitched an 8-hitter today as the Yankees defeated the Boston Red Sox, 5-3. Ford, using a snapping curve and a hard fastball, needed only two hours (and a little late relief from Marshall Bridges) to cure the Yankees’ ills. The victory was the tenth against five setbacks for Ford this season and his seventh triumph in his last eight decisions.
