With a Boston law restricting games within 1000 feet of a church on Sundays, the first Sunday game is played at Fenway Park with the Red Sox losing to the Yankees, 13-2.
In an 11-8 loss to the Yankees, Jim Thome homers in his seventh consecutive game. The solo shot, off southpaw David Wells, leaves the Indians' slugger one shy of the major league record shared by Dale Long (1956, Pirates), Don Mattingly (Yankees, 1987) and Ken Griffey, Jr. (1993, Mariners).
Andrew Rector files a $10 million defamation suit in the Bronx Supreme Court against the Yankees, MLB, ESPN, and the broadcast's play-by-play man Dan Shulman and commentator John Kruk. The 26 year-old used car salesman claims the commentary and photos of him at the April 13th nationally televised Red Sox game at Yankee Stadium showed him in a false light, damaged his reputation, and the fact that he was napping was not an issue of legitimate public concern.
