1935 World Series – Game 5
October 6, 1935 Cubs 3, Tigers 1 Tigers Lead Best of Seven Series 3-2
Still without Hank Greenberg who was nursing an injured wrist, Schoolboy Rowe took the mound for his second start of the series. He was solid in his eight innings of work as he gave up three runs on eight hits with three strikeouts. His only blemishes were a two run homer in the bottom of the third and an RBI double in the bottom of the seventh.
The Tigers once again gave Rowe little run support. They were held to four hits through the first eight innings before finally breaking through in the ninth. Charlie Gehringer, Goose Goslin and Pete Fox led off the inning with consecutive singles as the Tigers finally got on the board. With the tying run at first base, Billy Rogell flew out to center. Mickey Cochrane let Gee Walker pinch hit for Marv Owen and while he grounded out, he was able to move the runners over. Then with the tying run at second base, Flea Clifton fouled out to first to end the game and give the Cubs new life.
