Tigers Comeback Falls Short

August 30, 1935 Browns 8, Tigers 7 (80-44)

At times during the 1935 season, Tommy Bridges was simply unhittable. It was those other times that prevented him from having a truly historic season. This game got out of hand when Bridges was knocked around in the sixth inning. The Tigers saw their 6-1 lead evaporate to a 6-6 tie, and to make matters worse, the pen couldn’t get the job done. Chief Hogsett gave up two runs in the bottom of the eighth as the Browns took an 8-6 lead.

The Tigers weren’t quite done though. In the top of the ninth, the Tigers shaved the lead to a single run, and with a runner on third base and two outs, Browns centerfielder Sammy West made a circus catch out of Goose Goslin’s apparant game tying hit to end the game.

Tommy Bridges did try to help himself out with the bat. He drove in three runs with a double. Goose Goslin was two for three with two RBIs and a run.
