Walter Johnson completed the game without help from the bullpen and Rogers Hornsby had 2 base hits as the Boston Barn Rats defeated the Pittsburgh BS 1 by the score of 4 to 1 at Forbes Field '57.

The game started off with Boston taking the lead in the first with 3 runs on 4 hits. After an out was recorded, George Van Haltren was the sparkplug when he stroked a one-base hit. Honus Wagner was next to the plate and he drew a walk. Hornsby then stroked a base-hit to load the bases. Joe Jackson followed and he was walked intentionally to load the bases. Yogi Berra stepped into the box and laced a base-hit driving home two runs. Berra took second on the throw. Rap Dixon continued the rally and delivered a single scoring the final run of the inning. That early scoring was all that Johnson(20-14) needed. Boston had a total of 7 hits for the game.

Addie Joss(15-10) was charged with the loss. He pitched 7 innings and surrendered 7 hits and 2 walks.
