Indians Top Tigers in Fourteen Innings

April 20, 1935 Indians 2, Tigers 1 (1-3)

The Tigers lost their second straight game in a fourteen inning pitchers dual with the Tribe. It wasn’t until the bottom of the ninth, down 1-0, until the Tigers finally scored. Charlie Gehringer scored on a Hank Greenberg double to put the game into extra innings.

Elden Auker and Joe Sullivan combined to throw fourteen innings of seven hit ball. Unfortunately the two runs were enough, and Sullivan walked away with the loss. Charlie Gehringer’s big game went to waste, as he went four for six, netting four of the Tiger’s nine total hits.

The oddest thing about this game was that it was only the Indian’s second game, and the previous one also went fourteen innings.
