Tigers Destroy Yankees, Pennant Within Reach

September 13, 1935 Tigers 13, Yankees 5 (88-47)

The Tigers hadn’t quite clinched their second straight pennant, but by dismantling the Yankees, they pretty much took any chance of the Yankees making a September run to catch Detroit. With the game tied after four innings, the Tigers scored four runs in the fifth and then five in the seventh to bust the game open.

Hank Greenberg had a three run homer and ended the day with four RBIs. Five different Tigers had two runs as they pummelled Hall of Famer Lefty Gomez.

Schoolboy Rowe went the distance, and besides giving up two homeruns to Lou Gehrig, was in command of the game. The win put the Tigers up 9 1/2 games with only 16 games to play.
