Tigers Edge Senators in Fourteen

June 24, 1935 Tigers 9, Senators 8 (33-27)

The Tigers and Senators really put on a show for the Navin’s Field crowd. The Senators jumped out to a 5-1 lead off of Tigers started Tommy Bridges but the Tigers answered in the fifth with four runs to tie the game. For the next seven innings, neither team scored a run. In the top of the thirteenth, with Bridges still on the mound, the Senators scored three runs to make it 8-5 only to see the Tigers answer in the bottom half of the inning with three runs of their own to push the game into the fourteenth inning.

Elden Auker relieved Bridges in the fourteenth and held the Senators scoreless, allowing the Tigers to win it in the bottom half of the inning. Unfortunately I only have a box score for this one, so while I know what each player did, I don’t know when they did it.

Pete Fox, Gee Walker and Charlie Gehringer all scored twice for the Tigers. Goose Goslin and Hank Greenberg both drove in three runs.
