Senators Hammer Sullivan, Top Tigers

June 23, 1925 Senators 12, Tigers 7 (32-27)

Rookie lefthander Joe Sullivan was shelled for six runs through one official inning of work. He left the game with nobody out in the second, and the pen didn’t fare too much better as the Senators put six more runs up on the board. I couldn’t find out why, but this was Joe Sullivan’s last start of the season as he apparantly was relegated to the pen. Sullivan’s contribution shouldn’t be discounted because if you remember, he won the game that snapped the Tigers 2-9 start and he went on to win two more games over the next week and half. By that time, the Tigers had improved to 8-10, with half of those wins during that being when Sullivan took the mound.

Hank Greenberg hit yet another homerun and he drove in four runs. Charlie Gehringer hit a homer as well and both he and Pete Fox had two hits and two runs.
