Tigers Crush Athletics, Sweep Doubleheader

June 15, 1935 Tigers 10, Athletics 1 (27-23)

The Tigers made short work of the Philadelphia Athletics. Elden Auker gave up only a single run on nine hits and he struck out two batters. The Mechanical Man, Charlie Gehringer had a monster game. He went three for five with a home run, two runs and three RBIs. Hank Greenberg also homered for the Tigers as he also scored a pair and drove in two runs.

Tiger’s shortstop Billy Rogell drove in four runs as the Tigers took the second game of the doubleheader. Pete Fox homered and drove in three runs, while Hank Greenberg and Mickey Cochrane drove in a pair.

General Crowder was stingy and gave up only three runs on eight hits. He struck out two and only walked a single batter to earn the win.

With the 21 runs that the Tigers scored, they now led the Major Leagues with 288 runs. The next closest was the first place Yankees who had scored 281 runs in two more games then the Tigers. Despite the Yankees winning, the Tigers had shaved their deficit to five games and they stood at five games above .500 for only the second time all season (June 6th was the first time).
