The Yankees led the American League in 1939 behind manager Joe McCarthy, as six Bronx Bombers started the game and delivered four of the AL's six hits. Joe DiMaggio hit a solo homer in the fifth inning. Bob Feller kept the AL ahead after entering in a dire situation with the bases loaded and one out in the sixth, inducing an inning-ending double play off the bat of Arky Vaughn.
