Tigers Hammer Browns in Both Games of Doublheader

June 30, 1935 Tigers 18, Browns 1 (37-29)

The eighteen runs that the Tigers scored matches their season best (which would be equalled one more time, but never exceeded) as they pounded the Browns in the front end of their doubleheader. The Tigers put eight runs on the board in the first inning and scored in five of the first six innings of the game.

Gee Walker had a huge game as he came a homer short of the cycle. He went four for five. Pete Fox homered, scored four runs and drove in six. Hank Greenberg doubled and tripled while driving in a pair of runs.

Lost in the offensive onslaught was a great outing by Schoolboy Rowe. While he was given quite a bit to work with, he gave up only one run on seven hits.

The Tigers didn’t let up on the Browns in the second game of the doubleheader. The Tigers put up a run in the first, which was matched by the Browns in the bottom half of the inning. In the second, the Tigers scored four only to see the Browns shave the lead to a single run by putting three more up in the bottom half of the inning. The Tigers finally busted the game open in the seventh. With the scored tied at 6-6, the Tigers scored five runs to give them the win.

Pete Fox was just as hot as he was in the first game. He went five for six with four runs and four RBIs. One of his five hits was a homer, and he came within a triple of hitting for the cycle. Mickey Cochrane went four for four and scored two runs while Hank Greenberg and Charlie Gehringer both had a pair of hits and pair of RBIs.

General Crowder went the distance and gave up six runs on tweleve hits.
