Tigers Get Off to Rough Start in Doubleheader, Salvage Split

July 13, 1935 Athletics 18, Tigers 5 (48-31)

This wasn’t a good way to start a double header. Fortunately the Tiger’s pitching staff was somewhat rested from the All Star Break as the A’s jumped all over Elden Auker, who couldn’t even last two innings. By the end of the fourth inning the score was 13-2.

Hank Greenberg was two for four and Pete Fox scored twice. Other then that, there was little good to say about this game. It would be the worst defeat of the season for the Tigers.

Tommy Bridges bounced back after a couple of poor starts as he gave the Tigers a much needed jolt after the drubbing they took earlier in the day. He’d give up 10 hits, but only three A’s crossed the plate.

Mickey Cochrane went two for four with two runs scored and Hank Greenberg went two for four with a homer, two runs and two RBIs.

The split put the Tigers a game back of the first place Yankees, who lost their game to the White Sox.
