Hank Greenberg Homer Isn’t Enough, Red Sox Top Tigers

September 17, 1935 Red Sox 5, Tigers 4 (90-50)

The Tigers failed to get any closer to their second straight pennant as they dropped a close game to the Red Sox. The Tigers took a 4-3 lead into the seventh inning only to have Elden Auker give up two runs in the bottom half of the inning.

Hank Greenberg hit his 38th homerun of the season. Charlie Gehringer scored on the two run shot and Greenberg ended the day one for five, but he scored twice.

Auker took the loss as he gave up 14 hits through seven innings of work. The Yankees beat the Browns, so the Tigers still led the Yankees by 9 1/2 games.
