Detroit Tigers Drop Home Opener to White Sox

April 17, 1935 White Sox 7, Tigers 6 (0-1)

The defending American League champions dropped their home opener to the White Sox in a back and forth afair. The Sox jumped out to a four run lead in the fourth, but Schoolboy Rowe held on through the middle innings, allowing the Tigers to tie the game up in the sixth.

Rowe got hit hard in the top of the eighth and gave up three runs that put the White Sox in front for good. The Tigers bounced back with two in the bottom half of the inning, but couldn’t complete the comeback.

Goose Goslin had a big game for the home team. He went three for four with a homerun, and he crossed the plate twice. Schoolboy gave up ten hits and seven runs in the loss.
