The Senators open the season before 45‚850 at Yankee Stadium with a 3-2 win over Lefty Gomez. TheYankees tally 10 hits off Monte Weaver‚ including two doubles and a single by Lou Gehrig. Gehrig is playing in his 1‚809th straight game. Al Simmons‚ purchased two weeks earlier from Detroit‚ cracks a disputed homer in the 6th to tie the game at 2-2: New York argues that a fan reached over the railing and touched the ball. The Senators score the winning run in the 8th on a long sac fly by Shanty Hogan.
