Roxie Lawson Shut Outs Red Sox in Season Debut

August 24, 1935 Tigers 2, Red Sox 0 (74-42)

Roxie Lawson made his start in over two years as he threw a five hitter against the Red Sox. It was his first career shutout and while he walked five, he also struck out five.

The Tigers scored both of their runs in the bottom of the sixth when Red Sox first baseman Babe Dahlgren let a Goose Goslin grounder go through his legs. Jo Jo White and Charlie Gerhinger came around to score on the play as Lefty Grove was tagged for two unearned earns.

The Yankees lost their game against the Browns, so once again the Tigers had built up an eight game lead.
