June 12, 1967

As the Red Sox split a Fenway Park doubleheader with the Washington Senators, third baseman Joe Foy capitalized on a bit of hitting advice from Carl Yastrzemski. Foy had six hits in the two games, making him 12 for 25 in six games.

Foy’s hot streak included three homers, two doubles, and seven RBIs.

The teacher didn’t enjoy the day at all. Yaz went hitless in the first game and didn’t play in the nightcap, killing a 12-game hitting streak.
