1935 World Series – Game 1
October 2, 1935 Cubs 3, Tigers 0 Cubs Lead Best of Seven Series 1-0
The Tigers league leading offense came out flat as Cubs starter Lon Warneke held the Tigers to a mere four hits. Schoolboy Rowe threw a nice game but walked away with the loss. He gave up only three runs (two earned) on seven hits while striking out eight.
Pete Fox had two of the Tigers’ four hits. Of particular concern was the Tigers made three errors and one of those, a throwing error by Rowe was a key to the Cubs jumping out in front 2-0 in the top of the first inning.
