In Chicago‚ Bill Veeck's new $300‚000 exploding scoreboard is silent as no Sox players hit homers. However‚ when Clete Boyer bangs one in the 2nd inning‚ all the Yankees light sparklers and greet the third baseman on the dugout steps. Berra leads the sparklers in the bullpen. Mantle's 8th inning homer prompts another round of sparklers as the Yanks win‚ 4-2.
