September 29, 1935 White Sox 3, Tigers 2 (93-57)
General Crowder pitched eight solid innings before Mickey Cochrane went to the bullpen in the ninth. Chief Hogsett then gave a bottom of the ninth run as he took the loss.
Pete Fox, Charlie Gehringer and Ray Hayworth all had two hits in the loss. Gee Walker tripled.
September 29, 1935 White Sox 14, Tigers 2 (93-58)
While it was nice to see Elden Auker back on the mound after being hit by a line drive last week, it wasn’t nice to see him get shelled. By the bottom of the second, the White Sox had eight runs and Joe Sullivan was in relief of Auker. Sullivan couldn’t stem the tide as he was tagged for six more runs and by the bottom of the third inning, the Tigers were down 14-2.
Jo Jo White and Mickey Cochrane drove in the two Tiger’s runs, and the game was called after five and a half innings so the Tigers could catch their train.
