Norm Zauchin, the Red Sox first baseman whose bat had previously resembled a pop gun, suddenly found he was aiming a cannon last night as he put on a tremendous batting display with three homers, a double and 10 runs-batted-in as the Red Sox leveled the Washington Nationals, 16 to 0.
The Sox put on their offensive display without Ted Williams. Williams was in uniform but the weather was too cool for him to play. He was not needed as a pinch hitter. Manager Mike Higgins said Williams will start today’s game.
