Tigers Finish Sweep Over Indians, Extend Lead Over Yanks to Four
August 4th, 2005 | Brian
August 4, 1935 Tigers 7, Indians 0 (62-37)
Tommy Bridges was just short of perfect as the Tigers topped the Indians. It was the Tigers fifth straight win and Bridges threw a four hit shutout. He walked two and struck out four.
Bridges even helped out his own cause. He went two for three with two RBIs and a run. Backup catcher Ray Hayworth scored three runs.
The win put the Tigers four up over the Yankees, but they’d have to wait to pad that lead. They’d have three days off due to rain.
