Tigers Drop Two to First Place Yankees

June 19, 1935 Yankees 13, Tigers 3 (29-24)

The Tigers were on the receiving end of a hitting barrage this time as Lou Gehrig ended up a double short of hitting for the cycle, but his four RBIs were more runs then the entire Tigers team put up.

Yankees starter Lefty Gomez held the Tigers to three runs on nine hits. Pete Fox, Gee Walker, and Flea Clifton all had two hits, while Fox and Walker hit solo homers. General Crowder was lifted in the sixth in the midst of a five run inning as he took the loss.

June 19, 1935 Yankees 7, Tigers 6 (29-25)

This one was closer, but the end result was the same. Tommy Bridges lost for the first time since April 27 as he gave up seven runs on eleven hits. The game was tied 4-4 going into the ninth when Bridges was tagged for three runs. The Tigers answered with two, but their rally came up just short.

Flea Clifton had three hits and two RBIs while Charlie Gehringer, Hank Greenberg and Pete Fox all homered for the Tigers.

The losses dropped the Tigers to fourth place in the standings and they now trailed the Yankees by 6 1/2 games.
