Tigers Hammer Senators to Win Series

May 19, 1935 Tigers 16, Senators 6 (13-13)

The Tigers scored in seven of their nine innings as they crushed the Senators. They got off to a good start by putting four runs up in the first, and never looked back. Rookie starter Joe Sullivan cruised along until the eighth when he gave up a run. They tagged him for five in the ninth, but the six runs could only bring the Senators to within ten of the Tigers.

Ironically the Tigers scored their 16 runs without hitting a homerun. They had two triples (Gehringer and Greenberg) and two batters with three RBIs (Gehringer and Rogell). Billy Rogell had the biggest game at the plate as he went four for five.

The win put the Tigers at .500 for the first time in the season since they started 1-1. They still trailed the White Sox by five games, but they were slowly inching their way up the standings.
