11-9 Boston over St. Louis.
One game down, three more to go.
The Boston Globe says it best:
Another late October night at Fenway Park, another high fly ball off the foul pole. Years later, the same result: home run, Red Sox win. Mark Bellhorn hit a drive off the foul screen attached to Pesky’s Pole in right field, and Boston held on to take the highest-scoring opener in World Series history, beating the St. Louis Cardinals 11-9
