August 31, 1935 Tigers 6, Browns 1 (81-44)
The Tigers finished up the month of August with a strong win over the St. Louis Browns. In all, the Tigers finished August with a terrific 23-7 mark and basically used that as a springboard as they built up an insurmountable lead in the American League.
General Crowder gave up ten hits, but only one Brown crossed the plate. He was helped out by two double plays that were started by Billy Rogell.
Goose Goslin homered and drove in two runs and both Rogell and Mickey Cochrane had two hits.
