Tigers Edge Red Sox, Tie Yankees for First Place

July 20, 1935 Tigers 6, Red Sox 5 (52-33)

The Tigers almost gave this game away as they saw 4-0 and 5-1 leads disappear. General Crowder gave up three runs in the seventh and then reliever Elden Auker allowed the tying run to cross the plate in the eighth.

Fortunately, the Tiger’s bats had one more run in them. Charlie Gehringer singled, stole second and then scored the winning run on Goose Goslin’s single. It was Goslin’s second RBI of the game and Gerhinger’s second run scored of the game.

The win put the Tigers into a tie for first in the standings. They did trail the Yankees by a few percentage points because the Tigers had both won three and lost three more games then the Yankees.
